Are you using the version from the sysutils/ntfsprogs port? That is patched to deal with the fact that FreeBSD doesn't have block devices anymore and to align read/write operations to the media block size, which is required on FreeBSD. Also if you want to mount the drive, use the fusefs-ntfs driver. It's more recent. > So... Is there a way to format a disk into NTFS ?! If the port doesn't work, try using a windoze box.
