Create New folder on the external drive connected to MAC

I have USB drive connected to MAC, I would like to create new folder at the root of the external drive, but I do not see anything that would say "New folder".

Any help will be very much appreciated.

thanks

Click on the root of the drive and type Command-shift-N, or right click and choose "new folder".

Maybe your USB drive is formatted as NTFS instead of FAT32.  Without a third-party driver, Mac OSX can not write to NTFS drives.

Good point. If that is the case, you either have to reformat (erase) the drive and reformat as FAT32, or install an third party NTFS driver on the Mac:
