How to Copy Mac files to external NTFS hard drive?

I have a Toshiba external hard drive that works fine when connected to my Dell Windows 7 laptop and also to my Ubuntu desktop. However when I connect it to my MacBook, the drive is read-only.... the Create Folder and Paste options in the finder are disabled whenever I have the external hard drive open. How can I make it writable on the MacBook?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

You need a driver for the Mac to enable it to write on a NTFS disk such as NTFS-3G
