Is it an NTFS hard drive ?
Then you need to install ntfs-3g.
It depends on your distribution how to do this.

Kind regards

Look at the output of the command mount, if it is mounted, it will tell you.

command mount? Ok mounted means i can see the files right? if so the thing just mounts and i have access the second i plug it in. I don't have to use any kind of command. If i am wrong please correct me? (this is foreign to me as i did not need to do all of this to run WoW in arch)

Plugin the drive, open a terminal and type
Code:
mount
It will show information about the mounted drives.
Post the output.

Kind regards
