Hello,

I am trying to mount an NTFS Harddrive on my Ubuntu 8.04 Server machine. When ever I try to mount it, I get this error:

Code:
root@Bouchard:/# mount -t ntfs /dev/hdf1 /media/storage
NTFS signature is missing.
Failed to mount '/dev/hdf1': Invalid argument
The device '/dev/hdf1' doesn't have a valid NTFS.
Maybe you selected the wrong device? Or the whole disk instead of a
partition (e.g. /dev/hda, not /dev/hda1)? Or the other way around?
root@Bouchard:/#
I get the same error if I try /dev/hdf instead of /dev/hdf1.

Here is some more info that I hope will be helpful:

Code:
root@Bouchard:/# fdisk -l
