    Thats strange , since changing the file system of a mp3 file doesn't affect the reading of it ! so please what did you get when you try to play them from your ntfs partition ,and also what program do you use ,is amarok or xmms or ,......

    Can you access other files on your NTFS drives ok (i.e. open text files etc)?

    Try running mpg123 through a terminal and see what error messages you get.
