One of the reasons why u cannot copy files to your external hard drive is, maybe your external hard drive is formatted as NTFS, if your using Mac OS x 10.5 probably it is formatted as Mac OS X extended
(or maybe Journaled), by the rules, Mac OS X can read NTFS files but cannot write into it, if ur external drive is formatted by FAT 32 maybe it will work, but I'm not 100% sure. But for the first part, I'm sure of that because I had a recent experience with it, and it resolves my problem, for that, u have to format your external drive by Mac OS X extended or journaled so that u can write files to it, this can be done by the Disk Utility. Hope this will help.
