    Exclamation Cannot access my NTFS Drives!!!!

    Hello guys,
    i am new here and just recently moved to linux. I installed opensuse 11.1 but the problem is that i cannot access my NTFS partitions from the dolphin file manager, it gives me the following error...



    PS: MISC is the name of the partition with NTFS filesystem.
    Any Help!

    If they are internal drives, you will have to mount them using fstab.

    Here's how: HowTo Mount NTFS Filesystem Partition Read Write Access in openSUSE 10, 11

    If that's a bit advanced for you, perhaps return some info to here and someone will take you step by step; open a console window and run these commands, copying the session dialogue back here:
    1. cat /etc/fstab
    2. sudo /sbin/fdisk -l
    3. df -Th

    The first shows us the file system mounting table (fstab -- which partitions should be mounted). The second shows all the partitions, mounted or otherwise. The third shows which partitions actually became mounted. Full in situ picture.

    Edit: PS welcome to the land of openSUSE and these forums
