(Forgive me if there are any mistakes but i had to write my self because it didn't let me copy-paste)

Cannot mount volume.

Unable to mount the volume 'LaCie'.

Details
$LogFile indicates unclean shutdown (0, 0) Failed to mount '/ dev/sdc1': Operation not supported Mount is denied because NTFS is marked to be in use. Choose one action: Choice 1: If you have windows then disconnect the external devices by clicking on the 'Safely Remove Hardware icon in the Windows taskbar then shutdown Windows cleanly
Choice 2: If you don't have Windows then you can use the 'force' option for your own responsibility. For example typo on the command line: mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdc1/media/lacie -o force Or add the option to the relevant row in the /etc/fstab file: /dev/sdc1 /media/LaCie ntfs-3g force 0 0

Does the drive appear in "Places" in your toolbar? Or Places > Computer? Even despite the error message.

No answer...bump^

Did you try the option 2 listed in the error message? Open a terminal (Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal) and type:

mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdc1/media/lacie -o force

Can you help with this problem?
