Unable to Mount Windows NTFS Partition

Asked by Bharat Rajora on 2010-04-04

I have installed ubutu in windows.

Recently , I have upgraded to ubuntu latest version, since then I am not able to access my other ntfs windows partition.

In earlier versions were not having this issues with the mounting of the second ntfs partition

I have tried to google alot for this issue and now finally the error that I get is :
Unable to mount D Drive
DBus eror org.gtk.Private.RemoteVolumeMonitor.Failed:
An operation is already pending.

Please advise how can I access my other drive in this upgraded ubuntu?

Thanks in Advance.

Which version of Ubuntu are you using?

Judging by the error that you are showing, it seems to be a mount or other operation already in progress when you are trying to mount the NTFS volume. In my experience, this most commonly occurs when NTFS partitions are not cleanly unmounted from Windows before you try to mount them in linux. Try mounting and unmounting in Windows and then mount the partition in Linux.

Thank you so much.

I am using 9.04. No it not working.

And now I get unable to mount the volume 'A DATA'. That's the name of other partition. In details it : Cannot get volume.fstype.alternative.

It was all okay in previous versions. I upgraded it to 9 and this problem started.

After about 2 mins I get this error:
DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus)

Please advise.

Thanks again.
