    hi seve77,

    Welcome to the LinuxForums.

    Mandriva supports NTFS read access only and if you are trying to save data in NTFS partition, it wont work. save data in FAT32 partition.

    where are you saving data? what is the FileSytem of that partition?
    open terminal/konsole and execute this
    Code:
    fdisk -l
    post output here.

    if b drive has NTFS filesystem, its not possible to save anything in it. as i asked earlier, post the output of fdisk -l command.
