You need to install Ntfs-3g.

Here's how you do that on CentOS, and how you mount a partition with Ntfs-3g support: http://wiki.centos.org/TipsAndTricks/NTFS

I try to
yum install fuse fuse-ntfs-3g

How did you mount the drive?

Try this (as root):
mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/usb /media/mount

Replace '/dev/usb' by the proper device name and '/media/mount' by the proper mountpoint.
