Mounting NTFS hard drive with Ubuntu
Posted on 2009-07-14
First off, I have never used Linux before and need answers explained where I can understand them..lol... I have a windows pc and the hard drive failed on me.. I took the hard drive out and mounted it on another box that has windows on it.. (so i have two drives, one is good with windows on it and the other is the bad drive).. I downloaded the Ubuntu boot cd and booted to Ubuntu and when I try to mount the drive I get an error Unable to mount drive.. Again, I dont know anything about Linux and need someone that can explain what I need to do to mount this drive so that I can understand. I need to get some info off of drive.. I read some possible fixes online but dont understand any of it.. Thanks..
