Mac can't write on stick

I have a problem with my Mac, reading sticks.

It is running on Maverick. - I have a stick that can be normally read and written on PC, and also on older Mac OS (power pc one), however on my new mac I just can't  write anything on it.

The stuff can be read, but everything is grey and I can't write anything on the USB stick.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Check to see if the stick is formatted NTFS. By default Macs can read from but not write to NTFS volumes.

The solution is either to reformat the stick as EXFat using Disk Utility (which will erase the stick) or use a third party NTFS driver like NTFS-3G:  http://download.cnet.com/NTFS-3G/3000-2094_4-10913782.html
