Re: [opensuse] Read-only NTFS Disks?

dd if=test.iso of=/dev/sdg

mount /dev/sdg /mnt

and it is read-only!!!

Alas, Windows-7 can't see anything on the disk. The only choice
the device manager shows is to "format" the offending hardware.


You have to first format sdg as ntfs, and in the filesystem copy the
test.iso, as a file. Then use acetone to mount it, in Windows.

I wonder if there's some magical incantation or spell that will allow
Windows to mount an ISO filesystem that doesn't appear on an
optical device?

Try that acetone, as it is now, and find out.
