Re: mount ntfs only readable?

Thanks for your help, just one more question, if I have an NT4 file system(that contains all my music) can I do a FAT32/vfat (same difference) instead of NTFS?

Hello, I am trying to mount a file system writable, does anyone know if the Debian Sarge release 2.6.8 stock kernel can do this?

I have no problem mounting the file system but it is only readable.

The filesystem is NT 4 and is a second HD on my current Deb Sys.

As described in the official Linux NTFS FAQ [1], you can't really write
to an NTFS volume, unless you are interested in overwriting a file
without shanging it's size.

If you really want to share a volume between Windows and Debian on a
system, I suggest you use FAT32/vfat (same difference) instead of NTFS.
