    ntfs-3g

    Unable to post the output of fdisk -l /dev/hda1 as am using my laptop for this forum but have copied it as,
    "Disk /dev/hda1: 61.4GB
    16 heads, 63 sectors/track, 119132 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 1008 * 512 = 516096 bytes
    This doesn't look like a partition table
    Probably you selected the wrong device
    Device Boot Start End Blocks ID System
    /dev/hda1p1 ? 216399 1904881 850995205 72 Unknown
    Partition does not end on cylinder boundary"
    This is repeated for p2, p3 & p4 and finally says
    "Partition table entries are not in disk order"

    Hope this helps - Bruce

    We are not talking about
    Code:
    sudo fdisk -l /dev/hda1
    We are talking about :
    Code:
    sudo fdisk -l
    But anyway fdisk list your /dev/hda1 partition as "unknown", so therefor I doubt you will be able to mount it as NTFS.

    Perhaps you can try ntfsfix :

    If you are going to attempt to access the ntfs volume you should have root/admin rights.

    1. Get Root/Admin
    Code:
    sudo su
    2. to identify ntfs
    Code:
    cat /etc/fstab <enter>
    3. To mount ntfs (from the location determined from step 2)
    Code:
    ntfs-3g /dev/(your ntfs drive, ex. sda1, hda1) /media/(your drive designation)
    4. When complete don't forget to unmount the drive.
    Code:
    umount /media/(your drive designation)
    [offtopic]You might also try a virus scan with clamscan -i -r, once you have access to the ntfs. Make sure you update it first. You can choose remove (delete) as an option don't believe there is a rename option. Write down locations of potential threats if you don't remove. check the man clamscan for details.[/offtopic]

    Caution: This only works on knoppix 5.1.1 and later.
