I'm not on my main laptop at the moment, so cannot try the following myself, but, strictly speaking, shouldn't the "ntfs-3g" be placed before the asterisk at the end of /etc/filesystems, not after it?Linux Fundamentals - Chapter 6. The Linux file system tree
The /proc/filesystems file displays a list of supported file systems. When you mount a file system without explicitly defining one, then mount will first try to probe /etc/filesystems and then probe /proc/filesystems for all the filesystems without the nodev label. If /etc/filesystems ends with a line containing only an asterisk (*) then both files are probed.
Has someone tried putting the "ntfs-3g" before the asterisk to see if it still works?
EDIT: Yes, it's supposed to go before the asterisk: http://www.cnblogs.com/cute/archive/201 ... 61516.html
