I have Pardus, Windows XP and PcLinuxOS triple booted. If I am in Pardus I am able to extract docs from Window but when I try to extract anything from PcLinuxOS I get the error message " Could not enter folder /media/....".

Is there a way to get stuff from another OS?

Thanks for any help

This guide is about a dual boot:

But maybe it can give some help anyway.

Thanks John. Some quite good articles on that site on dual booting but they do not go beyond the actual setting up.

...... I try to extract anything from PcLinuxOS I get the error message " Could not enter folder /media/....".
This probably has to do with the way the properties and file permissions are set in PcLinuxOS.
Set/check them in PcLinuxOS to the wanted values.

Perhaps you have the PCLinux partition password protected or encrypted?

I suspect the issue revolves somewhere around this issue or something similar.  Windows isn'r a vewry secure system by default, especially when compared to Linux; one of the reasons why viruses and hacking is so common in WindowsWorld.

Thanks Mark and atolboo. I tried various settings that I thought might be the cause but nothing worked. However you have given me an idea where to look.

I have been with Pclos for 4 years and have lots of files I would like to transfer. It is an excellent OS in almost all respects but Pardus has the edge. That they share the same Forum system is an extra bonus.

 Hi Maurice ,
Question, how old is your PcLinux?
I ask because I've seen where similar filesystem in different distos are at different stages of development, and not always readable between.

Pclos is a rolling release OS rather like Pardus and a user would update it every 2 weeks or so. I have always kept it fully updated and, from time to time, reinstalled. The actual version I have is PcLinuxos Minime 2011.2, which is a cut down version with a minimum of programs. But, it is right up to date. In fact its Firefox is later than the one in Pardus.

I've managed to fix it thanks to all your suggestions.

I logged into Minime, opened up Konqueror as root and Dolphin. I then opened Pardus in Konqueror and Minime in Dolphin. And that did the trick. Should have thought of that but that's the way it goes with computers sometimes - something looks difficult then up comes a simple solution. Frustrating but very satisfying.

Thanks again chaps

Maurice
