I have recently installed Ubuntu 13.10 alongside my Win7 partition. Ubuntu runs fine, no problems there. When using win7, I used windows partition editor organize an array of older hard disks as one extended drive for additional storage, that now contains all of my media. Ubuntu recognizes this drive but when I attempt to mount it, it gives me the error:

Error mounting /dev/sda1 at /media/liambennett/Extended Data: Command-line `mount -t "ntfs" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid,uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=0077,fmask=0177" "/dev/sda1" "/media/liambennett/Extended Data"' exited with non-zero exit status 12: Failed to read last sector (1963937791): Invalid argument
HINTS: Either the volume is a RAID/LDM but it wasn't setup yet,
   or it was not setup correctly (e.g. by not using mdadm --build ...),
   or a wrong device is tried to be mounted,
   or the partition table is corrupt (partition is smaller than NTFS),
   or the NTFS boot sector is corrupt (NTFS size is not valid).
Failed to mount '/dev/sda1': Invalid argument
The device '/dev/sda1' doesn't seem to have a valid NTFS.
Maybe the wrong device is used? Or the whole disk instead of a
partition (e.g. /dev/sda, not /dev/sda1)? Or the other way around?

Is there a way to mount this drive with Ubuntu?
