Recently I've notice that my additional drive on my Lubuntu 14.04 works only as read only. I tried a hundred ways to make it mount as rw but nothing. Even sudo seems powerless... Also, that seems to be the case with anything that mounts on the system. From USB Flash drives to internal drives like the one I have for storage.
My setup is that I have an SSD for the OS's and a HDD 1TB NTFS file system for all my files. Also the system is a dual boot with Win 7 on the other side. In the windows partition the drive is working normally.
When I run the following command:
sudo mount /dev/sdb1 -o rw
I'm getting the error:
mount: can't find /dev/sdb1 in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab However when I checked both files they have the drive listed;

No matter what am I doing the Drive keeps mounting as Read Only, please help...
