Once upon a time, writing to NTFS was a chimera. For years I tell to friends to use FAT32 when installing Windows XP. But now the NTFS support is fine, even on Debian. Just type on your shell:
sudo apt-get install ntfs-3g
sudo mkdir /media/win
And add to your /etc/fstab:
/dev/YOURDEVICE /media/win ntfs-3g umask=0,nls=utf8 0 0
Where YOURDEVICE is /dev/something you can found on Partition Editor for the your NTFS partition. Do a mount -a or reboot to apply changes, and then go to
/media/win directory to start to read.
