Hey there. I'm not really a linux n00bie and i've been using backtrack since backtrack 3 although I only really used it for sh*ts and giggles at home and at friends places.

My current setup is an Acer Aspire One (150)
running Backtrack 4 (final)
Dual boot with Windows XP

So far I haven't had any troubles with it and the shiney new toys are fantastic, so thanks to all involved in the backtrack releases.

My problem is that my 2Tb external HDD is read only. if i try to write something to it i get "Could not write to /location/url/ect/ect/ect/file.extension"
I can mount it fine using
mount /dev/sdc1 /mnt/windows -t ntfs -r
and i checked the properties and in the mounting tab and read only is not checked.

so does anyone else have this problem with external HDDs?
i had a snoop around google but everything i tried made it worse (couldnt even read the files any more)

I would love a solution that doesn't require to be run every time i want to use my HDD. so when I plug it in it just works straight up.

if i left any info out just ask. I'm also sure this will help some others.
