or
open a terminal (Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal)
and post the output of:

sudo fdisk -l
sudo blkid
cat /etc/fstab
mount

Do you want to mount it at boot time or just once?

The partition table of the drive is messed up:

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdb1 * 1 1 0 0 Empty
Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary.

I don't know how to help you with this, but I hope somebody with more experience can. Good luck.

so what happens if you do

sudo mkdir /ntfs

sudo mount -t ntfs /dev/sdb1 /ntfs
