I tried to mount a drive via ntfs-config and the following error occured:
Mounting /media/mOVIES failed because of the following error:
Failed to read last sector (146876415): Invalid argument
HINTS: Either the volume is a RAID/LDM but it wasn't setup yet,
or it was not setup correctly (e.g. by not using mdadm --build ...),
or a wrong device is tried to be mounted,
or the partition table is corrupt (partition is smaller than NTFS),
I have reformatted my hard drive with allocation size 64K(formatted on windows with 64k setting) for a better performance on my WDTV HD media player(dealing with large files).When I mount this drive on Linux, the properties tells me that"blksize=4096".If I keep writing files using this default setting(blksize=4096) to my NTFS formatted hard drive, will my WDTV be able to benefit from the performance improvement of 64k allocation size ?I am confused, Does it have anything to do with "blksize=4096". ?Should I try and mount my hard drive with a larger blksize ?I did some research on google but couldn't find an option to increase the blksize when mounting an NTFS pre-formatted drive
I am using CentOS 5.5 OS. I already install ntfs-3g rpm, but I don't know the command to mount network NTFS drive. I also want to mount it on my fstab file, so whenever it reloads, it can automatically mount on the specific folder.
my external HDD of 750GB bring me an error during mounting!it asks me to get to windows and reboot twice or cmd chkdsk/f of which when i do it only option comes is to format it, i do not wanna format it coz it's with a lot of ma useful data!am using debian just asking if its possible to retrieve ma data from it using commands persay and what are those
If i click the ntfs partition from nautilus, it prompts to type password. If i type the password and enter, i see this message:

Please resume and shutdown Windows fully (no hibernation or fast restarting), or mount the volume read-only with the 'ro' mount option.
I can no longer access my external USB hard drive after applying routine updates this morning. It is a WD "My Passport" drive, 500 GB with the standard formatting setup. As far as I can tell there are no errors on it. Upon plugging it in I see a pop-up box "Unable to mount the volume 'My Passport'" and it provides no further information under "Details." If I try mounting from the command line, e.g. mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /media/sdb1 or similar, no errors appear but when I do ls on the directory it comes up blank. Also then if I try to unmount it, it tells me the drive isn't mounted. This drive mounts fine on another computer running Fedora (and all the data on it is readable). I'm guessing there is a bug in one of the updates--here is what updates I applied.

I have WD external 1TB USB 3.0 drive that I want to attach to a RHEL 5 computer. I don't want to format it to a FAT32 as I'm copyong over about 530GB of data. What is the easy to get the RHEL OS to recognize this drive? NTFS is not loaded on this system as I already checked.
The issue I am having is that Virtual Box does not recognize my USB drives. I understand that it is related to the fact that Ubuntu cannot recognize the permissions on the USB NTFS drive. So how do I mount the ntfs drive and gain full permissions?
One post suggested that I have to join my user to the 'vbuser' group in users and groups to fix this in 9.04, but I do not have a "vbuser" group in my list of groups. I am running 10.04.
I have two 1TB HDD's formatted in NTFS, one has windows and other stuff i use even on linux and the other is all media. i can mount them easy, but this is a minor annoyance because everytime i log in i must type in my password. is there no way to have them auto mounted on startup?
After installing the "fuse" and "fuse-ntfs-3g" packages, my ntfs formatted thumb drive mounts read only, as follows:# mount.../dev/sdb1 on /media/disk type fuseblk (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,default_permissions,blksize=4096)
I`m unable to mount my second hard drive I use to store my music and pics and wonder if it is to do with the error "failed to initialise HAL!" which I get every time I start Debian Lenny (AMD64 architecture). I have had this since doing an install (fresh) a few hours ago.
The drive is an ntfs one but when I click its icon in the computer section it says it cannot mount it and gparted says it cannot read the file system.If so how would I get the error box to stop appearing and how do I mount the ntfs drive?
Does someone know how to reconfigure this? I have three hard drives.
1. Sata 1TB. It has Windows xp and ubuntu 10.10 on it 2. old 30G drive. It has ubuntu 10.04 on it 3. Old 120G with ubuntu 10.04
I installed the oses on each drive by disconnecting the others. So each drive has a boot record, and I can choose by pressing F11 at boot. All ubuntus can see and mount the NTFS partition except the one I installed last. It's on the 120G drive.

I'm new to debian ,I was trying to mount my NTFS partition but I did that only with read permissions I couldn't install ntfs-config(allthough I have ntfs-3g installed).So I want to figure out how to mount my partitions with read/write permissions automatically as the systeme starts ?
I am trying to setup fstab to automatically mount my NTFS partitions. I have used various Mount managers to create the entries in fstab. The fstab seems fine, but when mounting at boot or even via Nautilus I get the error message that I do not have permission to mount the disk.
1) Can this permission be set in the fstab file? If so what is the syntax of the fstab entry?
2) If not, is there a tool i.e. GUI to set the mount permissions?
I am trying to mount an external USB hard drive. I'm using Debian Lenny 5. I tried to right-click on the hard drive and then select the mount command inside the gnome desktop environment but it gives me an error. Is there an easy way to mount and unmount this hard drive? The hard drive itself is formatted from the factory in NTFS. I'm going to leave it in this file format is a need to use it with Windows machines as well.
Just installed opensuse 11.3 Kdeversion on my laptop. Before installing it on live mode i had a problem of accessing my other drives (NTFS, FAT32 and EXT4) which said HAL system policy...etc mounting error. I could access all drives with root privilege. I thought problem will be solver once i install opensuse on my system. How ever i was really disappointed after seeing the same problem post install. Googled around for the solution and got this link
After this the problem got worse now i am not able to see any of the drives in the side panel. Gone through many forum and posts all discuss about external USB HDD.
Can mount.ntfs and mount.ntfs-3g reside simultaneously?
Whilst accessing an external NTFS drive mount.ntfs takes up a lot of CPU. I am not sure if its mounting the drive using mount.ntfs or mount.ntfs-3g? How do I find out and if they coexist how do I make the default mount drive ntfs-3g?
I followed the steps in the wiki shown here: [URL] But when I try to mount an ntfs drive I get an error insisting the fuse module isn't installed. I try to modprobe fuse and it says there is no fuse module.

First off let me say that I love working with Ubuntu. It's a great OS to learn Linux on. Now on to my problem. I have a laptop that dual boots. Ubuntu 9.10 x64 and Windows 7 Ultimate x64. Been working just fine. I was using NTFS-Config to auto mount the Win7 partition during startup of Ubuntu. It has been running fine. I am able to move files between the linux partition and the NTFS partition with no problem. Now I've come across a problem. I big problem. Just this week I installed VirtualBox onto Ubuntu. I started creating virtual machines. 6 in all (3 Win 2k3, 1 2k8 and 1 Win7). I was saving the virtual machines to the NTFS drive as this was by far my largest drive. I used a directory titled "virtualbox" under the c:/users/public directory. This setup was working great. Was able to get my vm's patched and up to date. Created several snapshots. Basically I was a happy camper.
Last night I booted into Windows 7. OS started fine. I was just surfing the web. After that I rebooted the system and entered Ubuntu and started Virtualbox. I tried to start a vm and it complained that the virtual harddrive was missing. I checked to make sure that the path was correct for the virtual drive and discovered that the entire virtualbox directory that I created on the NTFS partion was gone!!! Everything else was in place and intact including music and large video files that I had downloaded to the Ubuntu partion and moved the the NTFS partion.
I save these virtual machines???? Should I abandon using NTFS-Config. This is somewhat critical since I had took sometime to create this test lab and to have it disappear from simply booting into Windows 7 is crazy.

In the first case run chkdsk /f on Windows then reboot into Windows twice. The usage of the /f parameter is very important! If the device is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first activate it and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g. /dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1). Please see the 'dmraid' documentation for more details.
