Hi,

You will have to mount the ntfs fs.

For that you may have to install the ntfs3g package...

Find the corresponding ntfs3g rpm/tar file for your distro and install it.

Then you should be able to mount your pendrive which has a ntfs fs on it.

Cheers,
KrishSrinath

If the usb is in ntfs, you have to install fuse first, then install ntfs-3g tools. Use fuse 2.6. fuse 2.8 is not working properly.

After installing fuse, type the following command to test the fuse.

#modprobe fuse

if you didn't get any error message means, fuse is installed the module is loaded properly.

Now you can install ntfs-3g tools. Without fuse, ntfs-3g tools are useless.

Thanks & Regards
