Did you read the manpage of mount_ntfs? Have a look to the writing section:

"There is limited writing ability. Limitations: file must be nonresident 
and must not contain any sparces (uninitialized areas); compressed files 
are also not supported.  The file name must not contain multibyte 

Writing on NTFS with FreeBSd is a bad idea. You should switch to FAT if 
you need to exchange files between this to systems.

Under FreeBSD I've got XP mounted, and I've been able to examine the XP directories, but when I try to copy data or the contents of directories from FreeBSD to XP.  Using    cp -R   format, nothing copies, and I get error messages that the target files don't exist.
