I just moved to Ubuntu 11.10 and am unable to mount my 1TB usb hard drive, here's the error i get:
Unable to mount Elements
Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 12: Failed to read last sector (1953523119): 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/sdb1': Invalid argument The device '/dev/sdb1' 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?
It worked on Windows fine, i've no partitioning on the drive or anything like that.
Sorry for being a "noob" pain. But i've looked through forums and although there are loads of issues with usb drives, none are like mine.
Any suggestions are appreciated.
