Mounting NTFS windows partition in Kubuntu Dapper Drake
 
I tried to mount it with just clicking the partition which gives me following error:
Could not mount device.
The reported error was:
mount: can't find /dev/hda1 in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab


Then i tried these:
Windows
[edit]
How to mount/unmount Windows partitions (NTFS) manually, and allow all users to read only
Read #General Notes
Read #How to list partition tables


e.g. Assumed that /dev/hda1 is the location of Windows partition (NTFS)
Local mount folder: /media/windows
To mount Windows partition
sudo mkdir /media/windows
sudo mount /dev/hda1 /media/windows/ -t ntfs -o nls=utf8,umask=0222



wich gave me following error:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda1,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so


And dmesg | tail gave me following:
[4388244.210000] hdc: DMA disabled
[4388244.260000] hdc: ATAPI reset complete
[4442273.726000] hdc: irq timeout: status=0xd0 { Busy }

..ouch that looks nasty...
Can you try just-
Code:

sudo mount /dev/hda1 -t ntfs /media/windows

though it will mount the ntfs. it will be in a read only mode. is there a way to make this drive writeable?

I was under the impression that NTFS wite support for linux was still experimental. Try heading over to http://www.linux-ntfs.org and have a look at ntfsprogs

I dont know if this will help, but i was having the same trouble, have you tried to go to the location that you are trying to mount the ntfs drive in? you might find that all of your files are in there

I'm currently working with Edgy but you can use the same solution:
in the web search for ntfs-3g and fuse and you'll find the repository from which you can simply
Code:

  apt-get ntfs-3g fuse
After that you can edit your fstab adding

Code:

/dev/hda1 /media/windows/ ntfs-3g user,users,auto 0 0
if you type mount you'll find a rw file system of fuse type which is your ntfs partition.
