I have an external hard drive, that I bought back when I used Windows. It has a lot of Word documents that I don't want to lose. It worked OK with Breezy Badger, but not now, with Gutsy Gibbon. Ubuntu/Kubuntu, neither will mount it. I get error messages saying something about it's an NTSF file, I haven't disconnected properly, etc. Fussing with the MOUNT instructions does no good, and I don't feel comfortable fussing with FSTAB.

Any suggestions?

Try putting it into a windows machine, then safely removing it, then try plugging it into an Ubuntu machine

Did that; no help.
