Your external hard drive is formatted NTFS. This is a Microsoft proprietary hard drive format which is why Mac does not have a driver to write to it out of the box. You have two options:
1) You can either make sure to buy Western Digital products which all come formatted FAT32 which is writable by Mac's and PC's (There is a 2GB file limitation, a single file can not be larger than 2GB with FAT32)
2) Install a NTFS driver. The NTFS-3g driver is stable and I have been using it since beginning of 2009 with no problems, you can download it here (http://www.ntfs-3g.org)

I've got an external drive I believe it's the same type of drive. I have 250 Meg disk I can insert so you can just keep on filling up 259 disk. Why I stopped using this external drive us well you can get memory sticks that store terabytes now for the prices 1/10 the cost as one 250 dis. I know what you're wanting is a way to get the pictures back. Mine you just plugged into a USB port on a Windows 7 or above operating system and it found the driver. If your drive is the same type try finding another windows computer and plug the drive into it. I bet it will find and load the driver needed to get your pictures off. Unless and this is a big unless you're disk is corrupted. There are still tech shops that can read disk sector by Sector and pull off you're data for you. It's a little time consuming because it doesn't rely on the drive or computer they literally read the hexadecimal code then print it out for you.
