Well, if your external hard is formatted to NTFS (which it probably is) you're either going to have to format it for your Mac or purchase a driver so you can write to it. Mac OS X can read but not write to NTFS. Paragon Software sells a driver which we recommend - price is $19.95. You can purchase it from here.
