cant write to ntfs hdd - swinxx - 26th Apr, 2013 03:18 AM

hello folks.

i have configured my ntfs hdd to work with my rasp xbian as media hdd. works great.
then i have configured my mac to connect the the hdd via network connection. works.
xbmc on my mac found the nfs folder and i can stream videos and stuff from my rasp to my mac.

BUT!! when i try to write a movie from the mac to the Rasp HDD i get some strange error messages..
first i must enter my mac user name and password,
then it the finder tells me that the file already exists and asks me if i want to overwrite it??
and then i got the message that it can not write because a file already exitst..
when i check that there is indeed a file there, but with 0kb..

can anyone help please, cause i am a newbie and have no idea what i have done wrong.

thx swinxx.

How are you sharing the ntfs fs from xbian? through nfs? how your /etc/exports looks like?

I just tested it and works as expected. But be sure that
1) on xbian, the ntfs is mounted with -o rw,user_id=0,group_id=0,allow_other
2) in /etc/exports the mount dir is exported as rw,insecure
3) mount as nfs3 on mac
