    Specs:
    Mac Mini Core i7 2012 | White 2009 MacBook 2 Ghz | 733 Mhz G4 Quicksilver
    Its probably a Windows formatted NTFS drive

    Macs can read but not write to that drive format

    You can either reformat the drive to Mac HFS or install MacFuse to give the Mac the ability to write to NTFS drives
