Marlene--

Macs can read NTFS drives, but not write to them, which is why you got the message "the drive cannot be modified". From your message, it sounds like you haven't tried to reformat the drive. I'd follow Robin's advice and reformat it to Mac, or to FAT32 if you need to use it on a PC. Go to Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility and choose either "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)" (for Mac only) or "MS-DOS (FAT)" in the Volume Format popup menu.
