I just bought a WD Elements 1TB external drive, and would like to use it with Time Machine. However, when I connect it to my macbook pro, it says "The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer" and Time Machine doesn't recognize it. When I opened Disk Utility to try to reformat it, it shows up as read only so I can't make any changes. How can I get this drive to work with Time Machine?
