    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    Because you left out telling us that the WD external drive is formatted for NTFS, which the Mac does not natively support writing to (since its a Windows format). Reformat the drive for Mac (using Disk Utility) and everything will be fine.
