    I have an external hard drive that i used with my PC. I have a bunch of .mkv and blurry movies on it that I would like to convert for iTunes. When I try to mount the drive it gives me an error message:
    "NTFS-3G could not mount"...."the MACFUSE file system is not available (71)

    I was able to use this drive before I upgraded to Lion. Any ideas??

    You could uninstall NTFS-3G and MacFuse, as Mac OS X is at least capable of reading NTFS formatted volumes, NTFS-3G is only used to write to such formatted volumes, but doesn't seem to be compatible to Lion yet (have you checked the developer's page for updates?).

    I uninstalled both programs and it still comes up with the same message.
