    ok, so my buddy has this drive. works great on his XP laptop. but when i plug into my mini it will only let me read, no writing or deleting.

    the drives are NTSC, is there anyway to just change something to make them read write, or do i have to format and repartion?

    OS X can only read NTFS
    If you want to read and write then the drive has to be FAT or FAT32
