I am pretty new on Ubuntu. I was trying to mount my +hfs formated external hard drive and all of the sudden it didn't work anymore. I get the following error:

Error mounting /dev/sdc1 at /media/****/LaCie: Command-line `mount -t
"hfsplus" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid" "/dev/sdc1" 
"/media/****/LaCie"' exited with non-zero exit status 32: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdc1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error

In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so.  (udisks-error-quark, 0)

dmesg gives me this:

blk_update_request: critical medium error, dev sdc, sector 387418

Buffer I/O error on dev sdc1, logical block 48427, async page read

hfsplus: failed to load attributes file

already created an image with ddrescue on a different external HD, but cannot mount it due to the same error.

How can I successfully mount such drive?
