Auto mount NTFS USB memory stick

How to add an NTFS based USB memory stick to a Raspberry Pi

Plug in the USB stick to the usb port


sudo apt-get install ntfs-3g
sudo mkdir /mnt/usbdrive
sudo fdisk -l

The last command should show you something like this at the bottom


/dev/sda1 8064 241339391 120665664 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT

Then run

sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbdrive
sudo nano /etc/fstab

Paste this in to the above file

/dev/sda1 /mnt/usbdrive ntfs-3g rw,default 0 0
That should be it. Reboot the Pi and hopefully it should work
