Question Reading NTFS


What is currently the best software to read an NTFS primary partition on a basic disk?

My music resides there and i want to be able to play it in linux.

a software? do you need a software to read your Linux partition?

recompile your kernel and add NTFS support. Search on the forum for explanation, this is a very common question, answered many many times.

Najm, what distro are you using? You could even, in some cases, simply open up a terminal, become root, modprobe ntfs and then mount the partition in a sensible place.
