I couldn't find a thing on NATF when I Googled it, can you enlighten us? I suspect the problem is the EHD isn't formatted so a Mac can write to it.iMac and Macbook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.5), iPhone 3GS Airport Extreme Airport Express

NTFS is indeed the culprit here.
Mac OSX can read from NTFS Hds but cannot write to them.
For that you would need third-party helper tools like NTFS-3G (free) or the commercial ones Paragon NTFS for Mac or Tuxera NTFS for Mac.
If you use this EHD solely with your Mac you might want to consider reformating it to use the Mac OS Extended file system.
(Be aware though, that this would delete everything that is on the EHD right now !)
