Like domino wrote, I only got one ntfs partition, my Lacie external usbdrive
@ givre, my fstab looks like:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/sda3 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/sda6 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/hda /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0
/dev/sda5 /media/Windows ntfs-3g silent,umask=0,locale=en_US.utf8 0 0
/dev/sda3 / ext3 rw,errors=remount-ro 0 0

Thanks for the quick reply btw
It's looks like your windows partion is not mounted. Try
Code:sudo mount /dev/sda5
STOP Using ntfs-3g - if u don't want ur data corrupted
i got my data corrupted by using ntfs-3g driver in Ubuntu ...
i just wanted delete a directory in a ntfs partition and was prompted by nautilus that i can't delete a non-empty directory. however after deleting all files in that directoy, i found i still could not delete it and got an error. then i changed to windowsXP, also got similar errors when to delete, move or rename it.
here's the error dialog box. it says "can't delete xxxxx(name of the directory): the file or directoy is mangled and can't be read. "
maybe ntfs-3g really has "capable for unlimited file creation and deletion" ,but not for directory operation.
sorry for my poor English

@domino&Poka64 and for all other who want to try.
I found by reading the man, that we can pass a debuging option to pmount, that will show how pmount call the mount function. That's could be very helpfull if you try that
and post here the output. You will see something like thatCode:pmount -d /dev/sd*
check that /media/sda1 does not exist. If it exist, delete it and retry.Code:Filesystem: 'ntfs-3g' spawnv(): executing /bin/mount '/bin/mount' '-t' 'ntfs-3g' '-o' 'silent,async,atime,noexec,uid=1000,gid=1000,umask=007' '/dev/sda1' '/media/sda1'
Thank you so much
will do givré. In vista right now looking for an excuse to nuke it.
Sorry to hear you had a bad experience. These are my daily operations with ntfs-3g. I have an ext drive which i don't always have on and mounted. I have a 5gig FAT32 drive that I download all my hosting files and folders, hosting weekly backups, and a few hunder mb of torrents. When my 5gig FAT drive is filled, I move them to my ntfs ext drive. Before I move them, I delete old files and folders and replace them with the ones contained on the FAT32 partition. Not a single error so far. You can also look back a few pages and see benchmarks that were posted. I hope my luck continues.
