Mr.casper I used ntfs-3g to mount ntfs partition but when I use ntfsmount its not workin for me. Any reasons?

How did you mount partition using ntfs-3g? Post exact command here. You should pass default options with ntfsmount command too.
I would suggest you to edit /etc/fstab to set NTFS automount at boot up. Setting umask=0 will allow read/write access to all users.

Something is wrong in /etc/fstab file. Its mounting /dev/sda6 partition at /dev/cdrom.
Log in as root and create mount point (folder) for /dev/sda6 partition.
Those lines should be like this
/dev/sda1 /Windows ntfs-3g defaults,umask=0 0 0 /dev/sda6 /Windows_d ntfs-3g defaults,umask=0 0 0
