    ntfs-3g woes

    Xubuntu 8.04
    i've got a problem with the ntfs-config program.
    2 harddives = 1]Win [windows programs, etc][ntfs]
    = 2]Music files [ntfs]]
    I was away for a couple of days and when i started up my computer, the ntfs-3g program wasn't working, in that it didn't recognize either of my ntfs hard drives. It was running fine b4, but when i restarted i did the Xubuntu updates that were required. I ran the ntfs-config prog and it kept giving me an error [an error occurred please retry]
    if i go into file system and go thru media file and try to open hard drive that way it shows that my music hard drive is accessible but when i open it, it is mot my music files it is my windows files. It won't let me access the music files at all saying - Failed to open - permission denied.

    I have 2 machines and they are both on Xubuntu. The older machine runs Xubuntu 7.10 and ntfs-3g workes just fine.
    What can i do to solve this problem?

    Could you give me what error does it shows.

    I think that you haven't shut down the windows properly when you used your system last time.

    If you hibernated or turned of your PC without shut down you may get Permission denied error.

    but this may not be the problem in your case as you are saying that you can access your windows partition.

    Just post the result error here.

    Be as much as informative you can so that we can help you as much we can.

    thank you for quick reply.
    The error i was getting was permission denied, however i just booted back into windows to make sure harddrives were still good[they are] and when i booted back into Xubuntu it was all working again.
    So, problem fixed, but i don't remember shutting down improperly. However i did install a new nic card and did recieve an error on start up, but that had more to do with BIOS, not Xubuntu. Anyhow seems to be ok for now.
    Thanks again.

    Re: ntfs-3g woes

    well apparently, it is not 'SOLVED'
    Seems every time i boot into winxp and reboot to Xubuntu i loose the ntfs-3g/ntfs-config stuff. Yesterday it came back on its own. I have rebooted several times and it is still not working. The weirdest thing is that the desktop short cut i have for my Music opens as the desktop shortcut for my winxp
    Where in heck do I start to solve this problem?
