    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.
