    Default Problem transferring music from Linux to Windows

    I copied all my music to my pen drive, and when I go to copy it onto windows it doesn't work. Is this something to do with the way Linux saves it or something. Can this problem be solved.

    This likely has nothing to do with Linux.

    Okay. Do you have any idea what it could be? Do you think it is my pen drive?

    I do not know the 1st thing about Windows.

    When you plug your pen drive into Linux does it work?

    Can you not just copy the files from Linux to /windows/C ?

    If your MS-Windows is ntfs formatted, you may need to enable write permissions to the MS-Windows NTFS on your /etc/fstab file in Linux using the guidance here: NTFS - openSUSE For example from something like:
    /dev/sda1 /windows/C ntfs-3g user,users,gid=users,fmask=133,dmask=022,locale=en_US.UTF-8 0 0
    to
    /dev/sda1 /windows/C ntfs-3g user,users,gid=users,fmask=113,dmask=002,locale=en_US.UTF-8 0 0

    Is it the copy that's failing or the playing of the music after it's copied?

    What format is the music in? What file system is on the pen drive? If
    you transfer a text file can Windows Notepad read it?

    In a recent poll, seven out of ten hard drives preferred Linux.
