I would like to if anyone figured out how to copy files to a WinXP(NTFS)
When ever I try :
cp ~/colors.txt /mnt/hd/
I get the error message :
cp : Cannot create regular file '/mnt/hd/colors.txt' : Read-only file system
And I'm logged in as root.Not just sued.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Linux can safely read and write to a fat32 partition, whether it is your xp parition or another one. WindowsXP can also read/write to a fat32 partition, so a fat32 partition is needed for R/W with both OSs.
At times you can change the format in Windows if you select the properties of the drive and somewhere in there you have the option to change the format to FAT32 instead of using NTFS, etc. If not you'd probably have to reinstall the whole OS to change the format.
