Can't copy files to external hard drive....
*edit* Just figured it out after a lot of tinkering, please delete.
Mac newbie here!
I just bought a 13 inch MacBook Air, and so far I love it. There are; however, a few things that I have no idea how to do:
I backed up all my PC files to an external hard drive. When I plug in the external hard drive to the Mac I can see them all, but I can't copy any files from my new MacBook Air to the external HD. I downloaded a few videos to the Mac, and when I try to drop them into the external HD I just see a circle with a slash though it. How can I get them onto the drive?
Thank you so much,

On the PC, copy the files off of the External HDD and reformat as ExFat. Copy the files back on, and both PC and Mac will be able to read/write.
