    Even now and then I like to watch movies from my NFTS formatted HD on my Mac, But it does not recognize it. I know it's because Mac uses the FAT32. I downloaded some trial ware software called Paragon and it allowed me to use the HD on my Mac. Is there any freeware programs that will allow me to use NFTS HDs on my Mac? I tried disk utility and it won't let me change the HDs partitions type without formatting the HD.
