Can not mount NTFS drives

Recommended Posts

I have been trying to mount a 1TB drive that contains most of my media, so that I can rsync it into the array. I had done this previously without problem with the command...


mount -r -t ntfs /dev/hdc /mnt/media


Now, after having replaced the motherboard and stumbling through rebuilding a stable array to work from, I can not access the drive. Using the same command I receive the following output


root@Server:~# mount -r -t ntfs /dev/hdc /mnt/media
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdc,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so


dmesg | tail reveals


root@Server:~# dmesg | tail
md: recovery thread sync completion status: 0
mdcmd (24): spindown 0
mdcmd (25): spindown 1
mdcmd (26): spindown 2
mdcmd (27): spindown 2
mdcmd (28): spindown 2
NTFS-fs warning (device hdc): is_boot_sector_ntfs(): Invalid boot

NTFS-fs error (device hdc): read_ntfs_boot_sector(): Mount option
errors=recover not used. Aborting without trying to recover.
NTFS-fs error (device hdc): ntfs_fill_super(): Not an NTFS volume.



In this same system, I have a 250GB HDD with windows vista, it is listed as device sdd. If I boot the computer into vista, I can access the data on this drive without any issues.


Any ideas what I can do to mount the drive and access the files?
