    If the hard drive is formatted as NTFS you can not write to it from your Mac without the use of a third party utility. You can buy Paragon NTFS from

    here: Paragon NTFS for MAC OS X - full read and write access to Windows NTFS partitions under Mac OS X

    Or you can try the free NTFS 3G: NTFS-3G: Stable Read/Write NTFS Driver
