mount ntfs permissions denied ?


Hi all , I have installed suse linux 10.1
I have 2 hdd in my pc, the native one has winxp and suse10,
I can easily "see" the winxp partition without needing to mount.
However all my data is on my other hdd , and shows up in suse10 / my computer (aka explorer), but doesn't show any information, when I right-click and choose mount it gives the "permissions denied" speech.
Any ideas to solve this problem ?

Hi,
In a terminal, su to root (or prefix the following command with sudo) and type mount /dev/(name of your hdd)(number of partition) (directory you want to mount to)

good luck

ty for the tip , did try it however with
mount /dev/hda1 /mnt
and when I tried to go into /mnt it is locked .....?
will the chmod -r command work ? I saw some1 saying something about it , sorry for the vagueness lol .
btw I'm sure that if I simply copy the stuff from mu data drive to the native winxp drive I will be able to see it fine,
so basically it could be a permissions problem more than a mounting problem ...? ideas ?

I'm not sure I understand your question correctly, but here is the line I use to mount my XP partition in case it helps (from /etc/fstab):
Code:
/dev/sda1       /windows/xp     ntfs    ro,nls=utf8,umask=0222 0 2
Perhaps if you add the 'umask=0222' option to your mount command it might help?

Good luck!
