I have been using Ubuntu 11.10 for a couple weeks. I have 3 external hard drives attached to the system via USB. At present, they are set to read only. The file systems on them are NTFS. I have tried using pysdm, editing the fstab, etc. Nothing is working! Here is my fstab as it is now:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5). # # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> proc /proc proc nodev,noexec,nosuid 0 0 # / was on /dev/sdb5 during installation UUID=84c3df14-0aba-4326-ac0f-c1a99e8749b9 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1 # swap was on /dev/sdb6 during installation UUID=417c09b2-0282-47c3-a373-765f6af9fbb7 none swap sw 0 0 /dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto rw,user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0 /dev/sdc1 /media/sdc1 ntfs nls=iso8859-1,umask=000,uid=steve 0 0 /dev/sdd1 /media/sdd1 ntfs nls=iso8859-1,umask=000,uid=steve 0 0 /dev/sde1 /media/sde1 ntfs nls=iso8859-1,umask=000,uid=steve 0 0
This is really annoying me! I need to be able to use these drives! Any changes I make to the drive lines causes errors when I unmount then try to remount the drives. Can anyone help? Thanks!
