Ubuntu :: Mount.ntfs And Mount.ntfs-3g Reside Simultaneously?
Mar 4, 2010
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 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?
Storage information: 1st primary:SG 160G ATA 100 1st secondary:WD 160 ATA 133 SATA:WD 1000 2nd primary:DVD 2nd secondary:DVD±RW
Winxp in 1st primary.I did a fresh install of lenny on 1st secondary.
info about lenny setup: 1.Partition list:/boot,/,/home,swap 2.Every partition is XFS except swap.
At the end of installion,lenny installed grub on (hd0) that is 1st primary.
Everything seems OK.Lenny runs OK.
But when I switch back to windows xp,the diskmgmt can not detect hdd's info and the system meets a problem of shutting down.
After many times of trying. I solved the problem by the following way. 1.Boot with windows xp's install CD and use fixmbr on (hd0). 2.Boot with lenny's install DVD , do a grub>root (1,0)>setup (hd1) After that,edit /boot/grub/menu.lst and change (hd0,0) to (hd1,0) and also (hd1,0) to (hd0,0). 3.Reboot and Press F8 for a boot menu then I can select which disk to boot. windows boot from 1st primary's mbr,lenny boot from lenny's grub.
The problem is caused by a bug between GRUB and windows' mbr and maybe more about GRUB and XFS.
ubuntu 9.10 when I try to mount internal drivereceive the following massage Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with:Remounting is not supported at present. You have to umount volume and then mount it once again
Recently installed ubuntu 10.10 and rather like it but been trying to setup and configure everything so its a feasible alternate OS.
I have a problem where one of my hard drives doesnt show up in places.
The drive works fine in windows.
The information provided to me by Disk Utility says:
Model: ATA WDC WD 10EADS-00L5B1 Partitioning: Master Boot Record Device: /dev/sdb Partition Type: HPFS/NTFS (0x07)
Now i have a total of 4 drives, windows 7 on one, linux on one, and 2 storage. Linux recognizes my main windows drive and my 2 TB storage drive, but not this one for some reason. I assume it has to do with the partition type? Disk utility just shows its parition bar image as 'unknown' so yeah. Now there is one error during boot related to this but i can't read it fast enough to remember it all, all i see is the sdb label real quick.
im looking for a command for mounting an ntfs partition. what i want to do is to put that command to the "after startup applications" option. that's because that ntfs partition is my storage partition, i play steam games [win7 dualboot, thats why that partition is ntfs], download movies etc. in my places menu, its called 190GB Filesystem, and when i click it, it mounts up. but that means i have to click it everytime i boot up, because vuze can't locate the files if it isnt mounted.
by the way : /media/7C1EE4E21EE49684 when its mounted
I have a 3T hitachi hard disk partitioned by Windows 7 and formatted as NTFS that I'm unable to mount under Ubuntu 11.04. The disk is in an external enclosure connected via USB2. Windows 7 has no problems seeing the partition and mounting the drive.
On my laptop I have Windows and Ubuntu, and I use Ubuntu very often. How can I auto-mount the NTFS partitions once I run my Ubuntu without the need to manually ask to mount it and confirm with the root password each time and for each partition?
I have U1004 dual boot with MSW7 and sometimes want to mount those NTFS partitions for mostly reading operations. Ubuntu makes it easy by a single click in Nautilus. How to change this behavior and allow mount NTFS partitions with user's password only, like sudo behavior, for example? In addition, how to mount them read-only?
Note: I mount those NTFS partitions occasionally and there is nothing in fstab about it.
I keep my site files in an NTFS partition.When using Ubuntu, Apache gives me a forbidden 403 error when going to http://localhostI had this problem before, and if i remember correctly, to solve it I had to mount the hard drive as root when starting up, so I had this line in fstab:/dev/sda1 /media/Shared ntfs-3g quiet,defaults, locale=en_US.utf8,umask=000.But having that line there now doesn't make it work. It does mount Shared, and as root, but Apache still gives 403.
i would like to have all my ntfs drives mount @ start up here is the command im currently useing sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdc1 /media/D -o forcei have made the folders D E F etc now i know that the command for starting restarting and stoping samba changed in 10.04 so did something change with mounting ntfs drives
How to mount my external hard drive. The output of Code: fdisk -l was pretty lengthy but I am including all output anyway. The device I am trying to mount is the 1 TB drive /dev/sde. After running fdisk, I ran Code: sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sde /media/myHD and the output can be seen after the fdisk output (and yes I tried sde1 in lieu of sde).

jfluckey@jfluckey-desktop:~$ sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sde /media/myHD NTFS signature is missing. Failed to mount '/dev/sde': Invalid argument The device '/dev/sde' doesn't seem to have a valid NTFS. Maybe the wrong device is used? Or the whole disk instead of a partition (e.g. /dev/sda, not /dev/sda1)? Or the other way around?
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 use Ubuntu 11.04 (gnome) and have a ntfs partiton that shows up in the "places" menu that is normally in the gnome panel. But I think that partition isn't mounted till I click on the entry in this menu (when I want to access it from any other place, shortcuts for example, that doesn't work). How can I correctly mount all partitions I want on startup? Recently I tried something in the /etc/fstab file but don't know if this is correct...
My Host OS is XP and I am running Ubuntu on Virtualbox. Trred a readwrite and graphic method to mount NTFS but no matches, permission denied. It's not possible to mount NTFS using Ubuntu on Virtual box?
Earlier i had windows 7 in my hard disk, somehow it got corrupted. Over that i installed ubuntu linux 10.04. I am having a live CD, before installation during the live mode, i was able to see all the NTFS data (windows 7) available in my hard disk. Then i installed Ubuntu 10.04 on the same hard disc. Now under the menu places->Network->windows network. When i double click on this icon, Linux is throwing an error "Unable to mount location failed to retrieve share list from server" and not showing any files. Am having 320GB capacity hard disk. I tried using Getparted to find NTFS partitions, but i could see only the following, where NTFS is missing

I have 64GB USB stick NTFS formated. I'd like to exchange files much bigger than 4GB between windows and linux. FAT32 doesn't support files bigger than 4GB. Is it possible to mount NTFS RW under Debian Lenny?
