Ah, yes, this does it explain. I know, that ntfs to set r-w is always dangerous, and as far as I know, the kerne-module sets the ntfs-partition to read-only.

In my case, there are no important datas on the partition, I use it for testing purposes or as a container to save files for a short time. I just wondered, that users are not allowed to mount partitions r-w (usb, vfat, external drives), but meanwhile I know more about debian and mount. I discovered pmount.

Thanks for help!
