You can only fsck an unmounted device, otherwise you destroy the contents. For an NTFS device, you should be checking it on Windows, not Linux. There is a very basic ntfsfix command, but if you like your data I don't recommend using it.
Thanks guys for your replies.
I just installed NTFS-3G and changed the FSTAB 'ntfs' handler for the partitions to 'ntfs-3g' and now the HDD partitions are all mounted and placed on Nautilus. However, I still have the USB problem. All connected USB drives are auto-mounted with 'ntfs' as 'read-only', so I cannot write to it.
This is the printout of [ $ sudo mount ]:
/dev/sda9 on / type ext4 (rw,errors=remount-ro,commit=0)
proc on /proc type proc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
fusectl on /sys/fs/fuse/connections type fusectl (rw)
none on /sys/kernel/debug type debugfs (rw)
none on /sys/kernel/security type securityfs (rw)
udev on /dev type devtmpfs (rw,mode=0755)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,noexec,nosuid,gid=5,mode=0620)
tmpfs on /run type tmpfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,size=10%,mode=0755)
none on /run/lock type tmpfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,size=5242880)
none on /run/shm type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev)
/dev/sda5 on /media/abc12 type fuseblk (rw,allow_other,blksize=4096)
/dev/sda6 on /media/abc34 type fuseblk (rw,allow_other,blksize=4096)
/dev/sda7 on /media/abc56 type fuseblk (rw,allow_other,blksize=4096)
/dev/sda8 on /media/abc78 type fuseblk (rw,allow_other,blksize=4096)
binfmt_misc on /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc type binfmt_misc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
gvfs-fuse-daemon on /home/USERNAME/.gvfs type fuse.gvfs-fuse-daemon (rw,nosuid,nodev,user=obiora)
/dev/sdb on /media/My2GBFlashDrive type ntfs (ro,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,blksize=4096,default_permissions)
I tried this: [ $ sudo ln -s /sbin/mount.ntfs-3g /sbin/mount.ntfs ] and here's the result:
/dev/sdb on /media/My2GBFlashDrive type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,blksize=4096,default_permissions)
It did change the handler to 'ntfs-3g' (fuseblk) but when I try to copy files into it I get an error message:
Error while copying <filename>
There was an error while copying the file into /media/My2GBFlashDrive
Also after shutdown and startup, on Ubuntu splash screen, it says:
Quote: Error mounting partitions
Press S to skip mounting this partition or M to manually mount this partition
I skipped the step.
Then boot and login, the partitions show up on Nautilus but when I click on any one (for example, if I click on 'abc12' partition) it says:
Quote: Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with:
mount: only root can mount /dev/sda5 on /media/abc12
This error has been fixed.
But the USB problem above still remains.
Pls any assistance is appreciated.

poly_s.... I can't thank you enough. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
I've same problem, i installed ubuntu 11.10 a month ago, and i have full access on my hard disk drive and USB hard disks, but one day i setup GPARTED and from this day all of my hard disks have Read-Only permission, i use power codes in linux shell but my problem does not solve... last night i cut and create a new partition bye gparted, i have a drive that has 100G volume, i cut 70G and format it to EXT4, i know it is unbelievably, but the EXT4 drive that has 70G volume, was Read-Only .. !!!!!!
i think this problem is form Windows FileSystem, but last night i found that all partition that create by Gparted will be Read-Only...
i read this page and i guess if i install "ntfs-3g" package, the ntfs drives will be Read\Write permission, how i can solve the problem about EXT4 drives,
Furthermore... Why Gparted kill my Hards, Why Gparted Betrays Linux ?!! x-(
I thought Gparted is a unique application for partition management, but at now, i think this application work as VIRUS... i wanna report this bug but i don't know how... if you can't solve my problem show a way to me for reporting this bug.
