C: is /mnt/hda2 Where is D: ?

/dev/hda2 is mounted on /mnt/hda2 and is the partition on which XP is on for my PC.

If I do this, for example :

# cp /mnt/hda8/*.iso /mnt/hda2


# cd /mnt/hda2
# ls *.iso -lF

nothing appears.

However, if I log out and reboot in Windows, then the .iso file appears on the D: drive.

Why don't I get a D: drive listing when I do ls -lF from within Linux ?

What are the permissions on /mnt/hda2?

Try "sudo ls -lF" from within /mnt/hda2 and see what you get. You will need to enter your users password.
