My initial attempt to us NTFS haven't worked either. Seems like NTFS
has the same problems as FAT32 with fancy characters. So I'll dig some
more, but out of the box it isn't working..
cp: cannot create regular file `/media/FreeAgent Drive/T/Tete/L\'air de
rien/13 - Ais\332.mp3': Invalid or incomplete multibyte or wide
cp on the command line has this problem and GNOME's Nautilus file
manager produces the same problem.
