Can you drop this file in /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/ and delete the 20-ntfs-config-write-policy.fdi file that is there? It should fix the problem I think. This is what Ubuntu uses in their ntfs3g package to solve this problem.

Sorry that didn't work
Comment by Jan de Groot (JGC) - Saturday, 04 July 2009, 16:54 GMT
I think you might want to re-plug your harddisk or restart hal with this new fdi file.
