I am having a problem with mounting an ntfs drive on Ubuntu Dapper Drake. Or rather, the drive seems to mount, but then I can't get anything off of it.
I mount the drive like so:
sudo mount /dev/hdd5 /mnt/windows/av
(Sometimes I try the -r flag, but it makes no difference that I can tell.) The drive appears to mount fine. Using a terminal, I am able to do something like:
sudo ls -l "/mnt/windows/av/h-mp3z/Delerium - Karma"
and it will happily show me all the files in the directory. BUT, when I then try:
sudo cp "/mnt/windows/av/h-mp3z/Delerium - Karma/*" /home/jim
I get a "No such file or directory"
message (referring to the first argument, not to /home/jim). Further, when I try to open the mounted drive with a file browser, I get this message:
You do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of av.
I have tried changing the permissions of /mnt/windows/av, as well as of /dev/hdd5 (but even sudo can't do it, so that was a longshot in the dark).
My /etc/fstab looks something like
/dev/hdd5 /mnt/windows/av ntfs defaults 0 0
(although I have also tried specifying ro,user,exec,sync
This has me absolutely perplexed. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
