    It's what you should do :
    b) click the 'safely remove hardware' icon in the windows taskbar
    notification area before disconnecting the device.
    c) use 'eject' from windows explorer to safely remove the device.
    So log in windows, plug your device, unmount it safely (with b) or c) option), reboot in linux, plug your device, and that should work.

    what the hell are you doing with an ntfs external device if you don't dual boot, you should better use fat32 or ext3 fs IMO.

    Anyway, one way to fix this it to use the force option.

    1. Install ntfsprogs
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ntfsprogs
    2. reset the ntfs journal (don't worry, it don't remove data )
    Code:
    sudo ntfsfix /dev/sdb1
    3. add /dev/sdb1 in your fstab. This is needed because we need to use the force option.
    Create a dirctory where the device will be mount
    Code:
    sudo mkdir /media/external
    you can change the name if you want. Then add this line to your /etc/fstab :
    Code:
    /dev/sdb1 /media/external ntfs-3g defaults,force,locale=en_US.utf8   0    0
    4.close the file
    5. unplug & plug again your device. That should work.
    6. Don't forget to clic on 'eject' before unplugging it.

    Re: HOWTO: NTFS with read/write support using ntfs-3g (easy method)

    Hi!

    I'm also on feisty, and while pmount works, automatic mounting exhibits two errors:

    1) The charset on the drive is wrong. I suppose this might be a gnome-mount issue, so I filed: https://bugs.launchpad.net/distros/u...unt/+bug/75791

    2) Nautilus won't show the drives as mounted (neither internal mounted at boot, nor external mounted later). I suppose this has to do with gnome-mount too, but I'm waiting for an updated nautilus before filing anything.

    Any ideas about the encoding issue? I have *no* idea how the chain of command is supposed to work under gnome-mount.

    Re: HOWTO: NTFS with read/write support using ntfs-3g (easy method)

    I am sorry if you already answered this question but I can't look through 100 pages of posts right now!

    I configured the fstab file like this:

    Code:
    # /dev/hda5     /media/Storage     ntfs-3g     defaults,locale=en_US.utf8   0    1
    however the drive doesn't mount when i boot, i have to manually mount it like in your instructions on page 2. also there is no seperate drive icon, it just mounts as a folder in the file system.

    i am very new to linux, but enjoying it immensely, thank you for the help!
