    Hello everyone. Maybe, I should have started this geeky thread in another forum but... I have an external hard disk drive (WD Passport) to store important data backups. BlackBerry Passport supports the OTG, so I can read/write external drives except that WD because of NTFS. So, external drive is turned on and connected by OTG. The phone shows me a push-notification: USB device error. OK, let's install terminal emulator from BBWorld. I'm using BG ShellPlus.
    $ df -h
    Permission denied-img_20161020_212533.png
    Yes! That's it:
    /dev/umass/hd0 931G
    Well, we need to go deeper:
    mkdir /accounts/1000/shared/documents/hdd
    mount -t ntfs /dev/umass/hd0 /accounts/1000/shared/documents/hdd
    Hooray... Stop! What is it? Permission denied!

    So, I need some help. Thanks for reading.

    It looks like you need to describe your issue a little more. Not sure what your question is.

    Is NTFS even supposed to work?

    There's nothing geeky about this thread You tried to access a drive that probably has a format error which it clearly told you through push notification and you thought you could use command line access to circumvent that?

    It supports NTFS but it is DISABLED. I have not permission to enable it.

    BlackBerry devices, all of them as far as I know, can not read/write to an NTFS formatted device directly via USB.
    FAT, FAT32, and exFAT are the only supported formats.

    If there is a computer hosting the NTFS device, and that computer has the BlackBerry Manager drivers installed, then the ability for the BlackBerry to manipulate data might be possible via USB to that computer. (and in some cases, Network Data or WiFi)

    You were not able to create the "hdd" directory as your mount point. (First photo). This isn't even NTFS related.

    See the second screenshot. Shared folder is read-only, so I created an "hdd" directory at /accounts/1000/shared/documents/ that appears in file manager. And further: "mount: Possible reason: Permission denied"
