    It sounds like you have a dual boot system and want to read the Windows partition from Linux. is that so? What does your /etc/fstab file contain? What command are you using to mount the partition? Older versions of Windows use the FAT file system, so you may need to try that option, I see what appears to be a Windows 95 FAT partition here.

    I try to mount the windows drive using

    mount /dev/sda5 /songs

    the fstab file has following details, is there is any way to mount the drive without changing the NTFS to FAT

    /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 / ext3 defaults 1 1
    LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
    devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
    tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
    sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
    /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01 swap swap defaults 0 0
