Why can’t I copy files from my laptop to an external hard drive?

On my laptop I am able to copy any files from any external hard disk to my laptop but when it comes to copying something from my laptop to the external drive it’s not allowed.

It shows the disk is write protected, but when I connct that similar external drive to any other laptop, copying isn’t a problem.

How can I change access so files can be transferred both ways?
