Mounted windows drive but..


I can only access though the terminal. I load up the file directory panel and it shows the windows drive with a paddle lock on it.

but if I log in as ROOT user than I can acces it. BUt I want to use my normal user to browse.

How can I get my user (buzz) to have access this?

In /etc/fstab modify the windows entry like this:

/dev/hdax /mnt/win2 vfat defaults,uid=500,gid=500 0 0


Where x is your hardrive and uid, gid are set to your user (buzz).

If you see a "lock" on the moun point, your user probably don't have right to that dir. try to chmod +666 on thew mount point. All user should be able to READ a mounted partition but only root should be able to WRITE, until you modify your fstab.

still dont' work, this is what I wrote in the fstab.

/dev/hda1 /mnt/winxp ntfs buzz,uid=500,gid=500 0 0
&
/dev/hda1 /mnt/winxp ntfs default,uid=500,gid=500 0 0

is that correct? both of those don't work

this is how I mounted.

mkdir /mnt/winxp
mount -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/winxp

open a console and type id to see the uid & gid for your current user (buzz).

It should work with

/dev/hda1 /mnt/winxp ntfs defaults,uid=500,gid=500 0 0

you should write defaults not default.

hope it works.
