    so last christmas me and my brother got an external hard drive to share and back then i had a laptop with windows

    but i recently got a mac and i plugged in the hard drive and i got all my files from it to my mac no problems

    but now i want to put files on it from my mac so when i go to drag a file onto the hard drive in finder it says i cant and i cant copy and paste files either

    does anybody have any solutions because i want to back up everything for when lion arrives
