my usb external harddrive is in NTFS format. I use it for media storage - mp3, ogg, mpg, etc. Using Knoppix live cd, I am able to access/utilize the files but it seems a bit slower than normal. I am wondering if this is caused by linux-to-NTFS differences or simply the slowness of using a live cd.
will there be any trouble using NTFS along with linux? Should I backup my media onto dvd & reformat the external harddrive into the linux format?
