    Re: HOWTO: Mount NTFS volumes with write support

    I hope this hasn't already been asked, but how in the world can I mount NTFS with write support if it's an external USB harddrive. My ext. drive doesn't show up in fstab.

    I would make a custom udev rule for the drive, so it will always get the same device node from /dev.
    You can add the drive to /etc/fstab without the rule too, it's usually /dev/sda or /dev/sdb, depending what other external devices are attached that time.

    Re: HOWTO: Mount NTFS volumes with write support

    You could create rule for usb device with this howto http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=168221
    and add a line in fstab just like the ntfs one.
    Also, you should try this HowTo to profit to the latest improvement of linux-ntfs.org. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=217009

    It's not very trivial at first try, but I've used this guide with great success

    I also made udev rule for my joypad

    You will need uid and gid to set permission.
    uid=1000 will set the owner to you
    gid=1000 will set the group to your group
    umask=002 eq rwxrwxr-x
    umask=022 eq rwxr-xr-x etc...

    Re: HOWTO: Mount NTFS volumes with write support

    Wait, so can I write to my Windows disk from Linux now that I can access it?

    In specific, could I add songs to it and torrents, so that I don't have to use room on my Linux HD(which is 20 gigs as opposed to my Window's 80 gigs)?

    Re: HOWTO: Mount NTFS volumes with write support

    I just tested the new ntfs-3g and it is indeed working much better!

    I had prepared the debian packages to install it, but I see someone already did that
    So, I don't know of what to make of this How-To, since it is now superceded by the new one.

    So, for anyone still using this, please try the new How-To avaiable at: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=217009
