    Do you have the external HD connected at the time you're trying to edit songs?

    OS X can't write to NTFS, so that's most likely the problem. I believe that there's a third-party driver (Fuse 3G or something) but I've never tried it.

    Are you going to be using the same drive with a Windows computer? If not, HFS+ is the best option. As far as I'm aware, you need to erase the drive in order to change the format.
