transfer data from linux to windows

Hello Users,

I' m using Mandriva 08 and windows 7 on my system. When i login to linux and try to copy data from linux drive to win drive or vice versa then it shows........

[root@lenovo mnt]# cp /home/simer/Desktop/*.avi win_e/
cp: cannot create regular file `win_e/xyz.avi': Read-only file system
cp: cannot create regular file `win_e/abc.avi': Read-only file system

I tried rsync, scp but didn't worked.

Doesn't Windows 7 use Vista's administrator privileges system? Maybe change a setting in Windows to allow write-access?

i dont know about mandriva 08...tell me one thing if it is similar to RHEL 5..then mount the windows drive in linux ( u share the drive from windows first)

#mount -t cifs //windowsip/sharename /mnt -t user=administrator
then it will prompt you for the that..

Now u will get the full privilege on that filesystem...

Cheers !
