Hi, ok so i plugged the 1 TB external hard disk in my mac book pro and i could open the files in it. But, i couldnt make changes on it, so can you please tell me how to make it mac compatible?? Thank...


The file system in which that disk is formatter isn't supported for writing in your mac. 
You can't change the format without losing all the files so copy them on tour mac first then format it to FAT32 - go to Applications > Utilities > Disk Utility), the drive should be listed on the left side of the window. Click on it. Click the Erase tab. Make sure FAT is selected as the format and click the Erase button.
