[Wolves] OT: Noisy external hard drive.

Hi all,

  On the subject of clicking drives, I have two 1.5TB  external drives 
which when plugged into any of my linux boxes or my windows laptop work 
fine, but when plugged into my mac they both click quite a lot.  They 
are formatted to ntfs and have an external supply.  I haven't worried 
about the noise as they both appear to be working fine, and they both 
work perfectly elsewhere...

  Would you say this is a 'foible' of the mac trying to handle NTFS or 
should I be concerned?
