Security setting on Mac

External hard drive reads files on my Mac, but I can't write files to it. I can on my PC but I can't on my Mac, and it is compatible with both. I was able to read/write files to it on other Macs as new as mine in the past, but it won't let me write to it on my Mac. Where is the security setting to decide this for my computer?

    Blondred, Are we sure that this external drive is still formatted correctly? As i'm sure you know, Mac uses HFS (journaled like linux) and modern Win boxes use NTFS. They can both use FAT32 but OSx cannot write NTFS and vice versa. From either PC, can you verify the partition formatting? Cheers, Guru
