I have live ubuntu 12.10 on usb (4GB verbatim). I prepared live usb by Lili USB creator (it just copy the iso of ubuntu to usb to be bootable). Then I booted successfully the live version of ubuntu from my usb. I wanted open windows 7 disk (NTFS) from devices but it gived me error (Škola is name of the disk): Unable to mount Škola, Adding read ACL for uid 999 to '/media/ubuntu' failed: operation not supported. What should I do? I just need to access to windows disks cause windows crashed and I need backup some data before reinstall. Thx

Check if /media/ubuntu exist. If not, create it. then try and mount the drive. you will need to take ownership afterwards. – BiggJJ Jul 4 '13 at 23:14
