"The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer." With "My Book For Mac" 3Tb External HardDrive?

I've purchased this item not to long ago and recieved the product about 20 minutes ago. As soon as i plugged it in i was notified with "The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer." Giving me three options to chose from: Initialize, Ignore, Eject.

Please help with any solution on getting this external hard drive to work correctly.

Note that i am not trying to recover any files just back up the ones already on my laptop. (I own a macbook pro.)

Favor from:

So you cannot drag any files to your WD desktop 3.5" 3TB? ..... Or have you not tried, OR cannot get that far?

It shows up fine in D.U. by your pic,......new drive, so....

Initialize the drive.

verify by dropping some files on same afterwards
