G'day phaze117 & welcome to Mac-Forum.

Seems like you need to reformat your drive. Presently it must be formatted NTFS, which would account for your MacBook only having read privileges.

You will need to format the HD FAT32 if you are going to use it as an external and want to be able to read/write.

Am I correct in assuming you want to use the Maxtor as an external HD?
