Can the user that tries to download the file
access it locally? Mounted NTFS partitions
are usually limited to access by root...
Check your /etc/fstab and modify the line
mounting the ntfs partition so it's readable
to other users, too ...

man 5 fstab
man 8 mount

yes tried that. even root cant download. but all the files are accessable locally. so i dont understand. seems strange.

i get this kind of a message:

150-Accepted data connection
150 9.8 kbytes to download
450 Error during write to data connection: Invalid argument

cant figure this out.
