    Post change permissions in NTFS volumes

    I'm trying to make my NTFS volumes writable by the chmod command.
    sudo chmod -R 777 /media/songs
    But this doesn't seem to work. The owner is root, but isn't the above command supposed to work? Please help.

    IIRC you should set write permissions in your fstab, and not by directly chmodding them. Anyway, I may be wrong - the thing to make sure is, you have to have the ntfs-3g driver, the plain-vanilla ntfs driver is for read-only access.
    Even if free software were ****, it should still get our preference over the non-free **** secreted by IT corporations.
