Unless you have a utility that will let you R/W NTFS they as noted - reformat to a +HFS file system - aka -

Mac OS Extended (Journaled) - using Disk Utility.


The Mac OS can read/write +HFS and FAT 32 but can only read NTFS.

You need to select the HD from the Finder and they 'Get Info' to check that you have read/write privliges.
