Unsupported letters while file transfer
Trying to transfer files from an external hardrive to and from a kubuntu hardrive. When files have a non english character, the files will not transfer and I get an error. I found a solution for Ubuntu because I thought it might be similar, but that solution does not work in kubuntu.
This is the solution for cd rom that i found for ubuntu:
I am assume you are copying from an CD/DVD.
Type ALT-F2 to open the Run Command Window
Type: gksu gedit /etc/fstab
Enter your password
In the fstab file, you must find your CD/DVD line, it looks somewhat like this:
/dev/hdc /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0
You must change the 4th column (the one that says user,noauto) and add utf8 support. In my example:
/dev/hdc /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto,utf8 0 0
Remember to not add any spaces. Save file and close the window.
Try inserting the CD now, files should appear with foreign characters displayed correctly.
How can I change that to make it work in Kubuntu and with a usb hardrive.

usually USB storage devices appear as scsi devices which are designated sd rather than hd but you need to establish which sd device your usb hard drive appears as... and I can't recall how you do that :^) but I'm sure someone else will know.
