This instruction is too difficult for me. Is there any simple way?

simple way:

install this package: ntfs-config
and run it from Administration menu (or something like that)

simpler way, sudo apt-get pysdm
then Menu > Administration > Storage Manager

click the disk in the left pane, set to defaults, apply, reboot, sorted

Stange, my LMDE and other Linux OS always auto mount any ntfs partitions, both internal hard disks and USB external hard disks.
