This weekend, I plugged in my external hard drive to my Ubuntu desktop. But the drive won't mount with write capability. Is there a way to do that? All I'm getting is read access. Thanks!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Try to see if there is an entry in the disk list with

sudo fdisk -l  

Then try mounting it with

sudo mount -t ntfs /dev/sdb1 /media

To find the correct /dev/sdb location for your external drive look at the result of sudo fdisk -l.
