I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to use USB under OS X on my iMac. I have just got my first ever iMac and am frustrated with using my USB drive. I had previously converted this drive's filesystem from FAT32 to NTFS so that it copies faster and so I'm able to copy large files as well.
Anyway, I plug it into the iMac via USB and I want to delete some files from there but there's no option "Move to Trash". Then when I drag it to the trash, it pops up a message saying, "Cannot move to trash because it cannot be deleted". I right-click on some files there and go to "Get Info", then at the bottom of the window, under "Sharing and Permissions", it says "Read only" and I cannot change it.
Any tips for me? I have a 500GB external hard drive full of stuff and same thing, unable to delete or copy or paste.
