Help! Going from XP to Ubuntu, how to play NTFS media?
i'm going to be dual booting with xp and ubuntu. i was going to keep an nlited xp around for gaming, and use ubuntu for pretty much everthing else.
i have three large ntfs partitions, one 50gig for music, one 150 gig for television shows, and one 200 gig for movies. if i switch to ubuntu i must be able to play music and watch movies and such on these ntfs drives. also, i would like to be able to torrent onto these ntfs partitions.
what is the best way to accomplish this goal?
-convert them to fat32 (is this possible, and if so, wise?)
-implement some sort of ntfs-linux driver
-is this even possible?
i dont really know. i'm very, very new to linux. the data on these partitions is important to me, and i dont want to lose it because i'm dicking around with some dangerous linux software that i dont know how to use. basically, i need a user friendly option that wont endanger my data.
