Now you're getting some NTFS filesystem errors that you should fix in Windows before using the drive in VL.


i think i really need to format my drive and set it to FAT32. .. to know the score

hmm i forgot that an NTFS formatted disk cant be formatted to FAT32 anymore. . :(  any suggestions?


btw i was suggested to visit this site :

http://www.ntfs-3g.org/releases.html
http://www.ntfs-3g.org/support.html#locale3
http://www.ntfs-3g.org/index.html#download
http://fuse.sourceforge.net/


i have already downloaded the latest ntfs 3g version for slack. including FUSE since it is suggested that FUSE should be also be installed. . i will try this in my VL 5 and 5.8 hopefully it goes all the way  8)
