Your portable drive is probs formated in NTFS

Mac can read NTFS but can not write to it

You will need 2 format it to FAT32 so you can use how you want to

Yes formatting will wipe everything off it so the most ideal thing to do is back up your files from the portable hard drive onto another external hard drive or computer

Then format it to FAT32 and then transfer your backed up files back onto your portable hard drive.
