how to mount flash drive: error message


Hi,

I am very new to Linux. I have installed Linux CentOS 7 and I tried to install software using my flash drive. However, when I try to mount it by doing right click, then mount, I get the following error:


Unable to access "124 GB Volume"

Error mounting /dev/sdb1 at run/media/hsilva

File system type ntfs not configured in kernel"


Does anybody knows how to mount my flash drive? I found a website and tried to use the mount command, but it does not seem to work. I am sure I am missing something here.


I thank you in advance,

Best regards,

it looks like you need to install the ntfs driver. That means: install the package ntfs-3g.

Welcome aboard the LQ boat!

You are certainly missing the ntfs driver as per the error message
