Hi drhadidy,

Have you tried mounting the drive from the command line? What do you get when you type
Code:

dmesg | tail
?

Did you ever successfully mount other NTFS disks (USB or other) on this system?

All the best,
f

Hi drhadidy,

Thanks. Good to hear you are using other NTFS systems, so there shouldn't be a general problem here.

Well, the output you got there shows network events only. Now, can you plug in the USB drive and then run the command about 10 seconds later. It should show you some messages concerning whether the drive is detected or not. Also, as root type
Code:

tail -f /var/log/messages
And then see what output you get in that shell after plugging in the drive.

All the best,
f
