    Unable to mount NTFS external hard disk

    who can help me??

    I have problem when mount external hard disk (it can run on windows).
    This is a message error:
    Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 12: Failed to read last sector (312581744): Invalid argument
    HINTS: Either the volume is a RAID/LDM but it wasn't setup yet,
    or it was not setup correctly (e.g. by not using mdadm --build ...),
    or a wrong device is tried to be mounted,
    or the partition table is corrupt (partition is smaller than NTFS),
    or the NTFS boot sector is corrupt (NTFS size is not valid).
    Failed to mount '/dev/sdc1': Invalid argument
    The device '/dev/sdc1' doesn't seem to have a valid NTFS.
    Maybe the wrong device is used? Or the whole disk instead of a
    partition (e.g. /dev/sda, not /dev/sda1)? Or the other way around?
    Some result when i run code
    Code:
    sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdc1 /media/seconddisk -o force

    and here
    Code:
    cat /etc/fstab

    #
    # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
    # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
    # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
