as NTFS, which OS X cannot write to.
It would be unusual for the drive to be shipped like that but possible.
Once the drive is mounted, appears on the desktop, launch Disk Utility from the Applications/Utilities folder.
Select the drive in the LH pane and choose Partition.
Choose one partition, give the drive a name, choose Mac OS X Extended (journaled) as the format
Under Options, check that GUID table is selected.
Hit the Apply button and watch Disk Utility do its thing.
I've just bought a WD Elements Play which I guess is really an external hard drive. The idea is that I can save AVIs etc on it and then play them through my television.
I've attached the system to my Mac and its icon appears on the screen. I can read the documentation on the system but I can't save anything to it. It should just be a case of drag and drop but I just get a message saying that the Play cannot be modified.
Can anyone suggest anything to make this work?
