Problems with permissions when mounting secondary NTFS HDD for user
I have a problem mounting my secondary NTFS HDD for my user account, which concerns permissions for it.
I have used chmod 777 on both /mnt/sthd (as in storage hdd) and /dev/hdb1 (actual device name), and fstab reads:
/dev/hda3 swap swap defaults 0 0 /dev/hda2 / ext3 defaults 1 1 /dev/hdb1 /sthd ntfs user,uid=500,gid=500 0 0 /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom auto noauto,user,ro 0 0 /dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom2 auto noauto,user,ro 0 0 devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0 proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
But when I try to mount with user, it says: only root is allowed to do that.
When I then mount it as superuser, I cannot access the mount point with my user account. I can see it, but I get the message that I don't have permissions to access it.
What could be the cause of this?
I have tried both using the fourth column fstab setting user and users.
Thanks in advance
