Troubles in mounting 1TB hdd


Hello everyone,

I've some problems in mounting my 1TB hdd.
I can't get permission to write on the hdd.

How I mount?

Code:
bash-3.1# mount /dev/sdd1 /home/user/abc -o rw,uid=500
bash-3.1# mount
/dev/root on / type ext3 (rw,errors=continue,data=ordered)
/proc on /proc type proc (rw)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
usbfs on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw)
/dev/hda4 on /usr/local type ext3 (rw)
/dev/hda1 on /wnxp type fuseblk (rw,allow_other,blksize=4096)
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
/dev/sdd1 on /home/user/abc type ntfs (rw,uid=500)
bash-3.1#
As you can see above, I should have Read & Write permission for /dev/sdd1 but even if I want to create a folder on the hdd I get this error:

Code:
sh-3.1$ cd /home/user/abc
sh-3.1$ mkdir homedir
mkdir: cannot create directory `homedir': Read-only file system
sh-3.1$
I can only read files on my hdd but I would like to write.

How can I solve this problem?

You are defaulting to the standard linux kernel ntfs driver when you mount that way and that driver is read only. You need to mount with the ntfs-3g driver if you want rw access to an ntfs partition. The syntax is:

# mount -t ntfs-3g -o rw,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,blksize=4096 <device file> <mount point>
