I bought an external hard drive and formatted it to ntfs.  Whenever I copy files from the Mac to the external ntfs drive it automatically converts it to a compressed ntfs file.  This is very frustrating because my media player only plays uncompressed files, so I can't play my files on it.  Is there anyway to *prevent* my mac from automatically compressing the files when they are copied to a ntfs drive?

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
