You can re-partition your disk and create a FAT32 partition, but each one will be limited to 32Gb. You can create multiple partitions, so it is possible.

Please see the link in post #14 for a link for creating partitions.

There are many possible solutions, it just depends on what works best for you.

Is the FUSE method better to use? Should I follow the steps on http://www.ntfsonmac.com/ and do that instead?
Thanks

Hi, I am up to the step of "3.Right-click an unallocated region on your hard disk, and then click New Simple Volume." but I do not see New Simple Volume when I right click.
I only see Open, Explore, Format, Delete Volume, Properties, etc
There is no New Simple Volume when I right click.... what do I do?

Also, I accidently clicked Make Partition Active for my primary OS © drive... how can I undo this?
Thanks

I am not sure of which is better as I don't have a Mac.

If you are using the existing disk with the existing NTFS partition, you would not need to create a partition.

I am not sure of where you are seeing step 3.
