mount: unknown filesystem type 'ntfs'


What's a program that I can install that will recognize my ntfs partition?

You need the proper kernel driver and utilities. See if 'ntfs' is listed in /proc/filesystems.

'ntfs' was not listed in /proc/filesystems.

Then your kernel lacks support for ntfs, or the module is not loaded and needs to be loaded. Try running 'modprobe ntfs'. If that is not found, you'll need a kernel with ntfs support.
