Other accounts can't access partition "hdb1"

I have a partition at "hdb1", all accounts cannot access it but root. I have other partitions on the same harddrive and they are all accessible.

hdb1 is in windows NTFS filesystem the rest are FAT. Here is the fstab in comparison to another
/dev/hdb1        /mnt/par1     ntfs        auto,ro,users,sync,exec,dev,suid           1   0
/dev/hdb6        /mnt/par2    vfat        auto,users,exec,dev,suid,sync     1   0

Why can't other users besides root access hdb1?

Thanks in advance!

add umask=000 to auto,ro,users,sync,exec,dev,suid and see if that works.
