Ubuntu. I have attached a SATA hard drive (ntfs format) to the usb port of a computer that is running Ubuntu (using a special cable that I purchased). I was hoping to copy some files from this drive, and delete others. When I plugged in the drive, it was automatically mounted in Ubuntu and the File Browser opened. I could see my folders on it just fine. I can navigate through the folders, but I'm not able to delete any of them through the File Browser. I get a message saying it is read-only. I opened a terminal windows and typed in mount to see how this drive was listed. Here is what the listing showed:
/dev/sdd1 on /media/VIDEO type ntfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,uid=1000,gid=1000,umask=077,iocharset=utf8)
I thought maybe it really was mounted as read-only (ro), but it shows rw, which should be read-write. I'm still a newbie with linux, so I'm probably missing something obvious.
What do I need to do to be able to delete files from this drive?
Thanks for your help!
