    Here is the latest I get:

    Actually something changed in 12A43 or 12A50. Preventing writing to the drive from applications. It also removed the ability to look up hidden drives like /Volumes when modifying a shortcut's destination location.

    Basically it was a surgical strike against people using native NTFS in Mountain Lion. (especially from GUI side).




    I'm running 12C60. I may plug the drives into my old G4 PowerBook and I should be able to recognize and read/write from there but that's not the optimal solution for me.

    I did read where you can go into /etc/fstab.hd and change it to ignore the ignore this drive file in there. That's above my pay grade though.

    See my post right above this one. If you plug that enclosure into a windows box and it sees it as 'one logical drive' that is your problem. You have an enclosure emulating software RAID and macintosh OSX doesn't know how to recognize it. There's probably some sort of addon that would allow it to. Have you checked the manufacturer's website?

    It doesn't see it as one logical drive. It sees it as 2TBUSB1 and 2TBUSB2 which is the names I gave them. I trying it on my G4 although that doesn't make a lot of sense as I could just plug them into a Windows computer and share them with the Apples. It's just not convenient that way as the Windows are laptops.

    Okay, that is weird then. I don't buy enclosures (I make my own eternal drives) but why would you market an enclosure with two physical drives seen as... two physical drives? Typically enclosures with more than one physical hard drive are sold with a built in RAID array in the enclosure.

    I guess that's beside the point, and I don't know why your apple doesn't see them. Good luck!

    It's just an ordinary two bay enclosure with no RAID capability. You can buy two with RAID or more typically four bays or more. It's one power unit and enclosure that will hold 4 TBs of storage. That's appealing to me.

    Look up macFUSE.

    Haven't used it since my solution uses a shared drive on my network (no NAS).

    Paragon is used a lot as well.
