More details please. That's really not enough to go on.

Is this the primary hard drive or is it a secondary or external one? If it's the latter, check that it's mounted with read/write access.

Run the command cat /etc/mtab in a terminal and post the output here.

Try to copy a file to the target in a terminal and post the output of the command. The error messages may be helpful.

I've never mounted an ntfs partition as type "ntfs", but always as type "ntfs-3g". I'd try that first.
