VL 7.0?  I don't think it is pre-configured for ntfs. Try installing ntfs-3g.

ntfs was automatically recognized starting with VL 5.8. ;)

I remembered wrong. Just checked the ISO and ntfs-3g is included.

@retired1af, I don't have a current installation of 7.0, can you verify that the udev rules are configured to mount usb ntfs drives read-write upon insertion?

I had the same problem some months ago, i believe it was when i upgraded pcmanfm or libfm, or maybe because i stoped using gdm, consolekit and policykit, but anyway, the solution is easy, just create the /etc/filesystems file and add the following line:

Code: [Select]
ntfs-3g
and thats all, you can add any lots of different filesystem you use if you get same problem again, here is what my /etc/filesystems looks like:

Code: [Select]
vfat
ntfs
ntfs-3g
iso9660
udf
reiserfs
ext3
ext2
ext4
ftpfs

I'm pretty sure i just needed to add the ntfs-3g, udf and ftpfs lines, but added the others anyways, just because.

I just blew the last 7.0 install off the computer two days ago. :(

However, if I recall, drives are not automatically mounted. The system will recognize the drive, but then you must manually mount it in order to access it.
