You need to say a prayer every time you insert it... there are some special words mentioned in this thread... http://tinyurl.com/cxxpc7

How about you write one precise post instead of writing a string of imprecise posts that slowly but surely disambiguate your original request.

I have an external drive to NTFS formtted. If I link this unit can not write any file. How to automatically mount the hard disk in ntfs-3g instead of ntfs? On google there is no answer.

You need to change your "fstab" file because the program that does automatic mounting will look at your fstab file.
