I have this 1TB hard drive from segate that I am not able to mount.

This is output of sudo fdisk -l (showing only part related to external drive i need to mount)

Disk /dev/sdb: 931.5 GiB, 1000204884992 bytes, 1953525166 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disklabel type: dos
Disk identifier: 0xabc539bb

Device     Boot Start        End    Sectors   Size Id Type
/dev/sdb1          63 1953520064 1953520002 931.5G  7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT

Also this is what I see in dmesg when i connect the usb:

When I try to mount it I see:

sudo ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /media/anup/FreeAgent/
Failed to open ntfs attribute: No such file or directory
Failed to load $MFT: No such file or directory
Failed to mount '/dev/sdb1': No such file or directory

Please help.

Run:

sudo mkdir /media/anup/FreeAgent/
sudo mount -t ntfs /dev/sdb1 /media/anup/FreeAgent/
