    USB NTFS External HDD connected to a Macbook Pro?

    Hi All

    If i have a WD My Book NTFS formatted external Hdd with 1000+ photos on it. Will i be able to copy them off it onto a macbook pro.

    Then reformat it for mac use.

    Then put the photos back as i know that macs can only read ntfs hdds but not write to them.

    Thanks

    Yes, by default you will only be able to read but NOT write files from/to the drive.
