May I suggest plugging it in to a Windows, let it mount and then unmount it using the safe removal tool in the taskbar/superbar?
As NTFS support in Linux is reverse engineered and experimental, the NTFS-3G program will refuse to mount unclean volumes.
Hope this helps!
This is certainly true, but the first question has to be:
Have you installed (and are presently using) the "new" ntfs-3g driver (as opposed to the standard/"old" ntfs driver) ?
And some folks need to stop being fanboys and see the forest behind the trees.
