    2nd Hard Drive locked


    I recently switched from Win XP to Ubuntu Breezy, then Dapper. I need to get some files off of a ntfs partitioned hard drive.
    I first confirmed the windows drive was located at hdb1
    I created /mnt/win
    then mount -t ntfs /dev/hdb1 /mnt/win

    When I go to access the drive, it is locked. I have tried googling and searching these forums, but found no mention of this specific problem.

    hi pawonfire !!

    locked means... you dont have previlages to access this partition....
    try as a root....

    I need to correct my first post. I used:
    sudo mount -t ntfs /dev/hdb1 /mnt/win

    Then I try to access it with cd /mnt/win.

    I tried sudo cd /mnt/win, with no sucess
