rhythmbox importing from ntfs partition times out

As the title, I have my mp3s stored on an ntfs partition, and when I try to add this folder it imports only a few of the folders and then the progress bar keeps going but never gets any songs loaded. I have to force quit the application to stop it. Loading an exact copy of this folder over samba from my file server works perfectly, although it takes a while longer than it would locally.

Also I did an update of all the packages, which included the kernel to 2.6.11. However this new kernel does not seem to boot, but rather hangs just after loading network storage solution (a couple of lines after "Press I for interactive startup").

Any thoughts basically?
