    lion will not mont NTFS external hard drive
    Hi All,

    Just upgraded to Lion, Now I,m getting a message saying

    "NTFS-3G could not mount /dev/disk2s1
    at /Volumes/BACK UP because the following problem occurred:

    /Library/Filesystems/fusefs.fs/Support/fusefs.kext failed to load - (libkern/kext) link error; check the system/kernel logs for errors or try kextutil(8).
    the MacFUSE file system is not available (71)"

    This Hard drive holds all my movies and tv shows.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks

    Specs:
    Performa 6116 2GBSCSI 8MB OS 7.5.3
    NTFS-3G is not Lion compatible. Uninstall it and mount the NTFS drive as read only. At this point that is your only option until they come out with a new driver.

    Or try this,...

    My advice is to stay away from anything Tuxera whether it's free or not. Instead, invest $19.95 and buy the reliable Paragon NTFS from here.
