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

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.
