No write access with sudo


Hi all. I recently figured out how to get my sudoers file working so that i can use truecrypt. I can mount my encrypted volumes just fine no problem. However i cant write anything, its only read access. This is my sudoers file conf thus far.

Code:
User_Alias MAINTAINERS = user
Cmnd_Alias DEB = /usr/bin/truecrypt, /usr/bin/truecrypt --core-service
root ALL=(ALL) ALL
MAINTAINERS ALL = DEB
When i try to copy something to the volume i get this error

Quote:
Error "Access denied" while copying "/home/user...op/list.txt".
What do i need to add to my sudoers file so that i have write access? Thanx in advance!

if it's ntfs, you'd need ntfs-3g

Are you able to write on all other partitions?

Also try su root

Well i installed ntfs-3g and nothing changed. This doesnt make any sense because i had a truecrypt volume that i made on Windows and mounted/deleted/added files to on Linux(fedora). Could it be something with Debian?(my current distro)

[solved]

The problem was the volume was created in NTFS. So i made another with FAT and all was well. *phew* and i thought it had something to do with my distro
