So I just got my first mac and its great, but I have one beef - os x wont let me copy files back and forth from my external hdd. I have a fujitsu 80 gb hdd and I want to back up some files from the my macbook pro. When I try to copy files over to the external it says the external folder cannot be modified. I looked at the external hdd under 'get info' and it said something about it being a windows format. Do I need to reformat my external hard so it can work with os x and if so how do i do that?

ps. i can pull files off the external but i cannot copy files onto it.

any help would save me from losing my hair, thanks.
