I just purchased a freeagent go 500gb and tried plugging it into my powerbook g4. it was detected but i tried to mount it and failed. i then unplugged the external hdd. now i plug it into my mac and it does not detect the drive! here is what is written in the log. Mount of disk1s1 failed Verify and Repair disk disk1s1 ** /usr/local/bin/ntfsfix has been disabled because of volume corruption issues. ** If you still want to try fixing your volume, use /usr/local/bin/ntfsfix from the command line... Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit Disk Utility stopped repairing disk1s1 because the following error was encountered: The underlying task reported failure on exit 1 non HFS volume checked 1 volume could not be repaired because of an error i then reformatted the drive on my windows to ntfs (it came pre-formatted in ntfs). i plugged it in but the same thing still happens! can anyone help me! btw all this is done with macfuse + ntfs-3g. i have another external hard drive written in ntfs and it reads fine on my mac.
