10.6: Enable native NTFS read/write support
Authored by: evangraj on Oct 01, '10 07:56:47AM

Hello. I am using Mac OS.X vs 10.5.8 and I could never find my ntfs UUID so was not able to go though these steps. However, upon reinstalling macfuse and ntfs 3g, i can now not write to my NTFS drive at all. The permissions used to say custom where as now they say read only. I have uninstalled and reinstalled macfuse and ntfs 3g several times and no luck.

Furthermore if I try to mount it using the terminal I get the following error:
MacStar-2:dev rockstar$ sudo mount -v -t ntfs-3g /dev/disk1 '/Volumes/My Book'
Failed to startup volume : Invalid argument
Couldn't mount device '/dev/disk1' : Invalid argument
Failed to startup volume : Invalid argument
Couldn't mount device '/dev/disk1' : Invalid argument
[Mount] ERROR: Mounting /dev/disk1 as /Volumes/My Book failed! Output: Error opening '/dev/rdisk1': Resource busy
Failed to mount '/dev/rdisk1': Resource busy
Mount is denied because the NTFS volume is already exclusively opened.
The volume may be already mounted, or another software may use it which
could be identified for example by the help of the 'fuser' command.

Please help.
