So here we go, this is what happened.

1. I needed to install kpartx
sudo apt-get install kpartx
2. I ran the command which mapped the partitions for me :-) (below is my case scenario, any one else will have to replace "nvidia_facfcied" with their raid:
sudo kpartx -a /dev/mapper/nvidia_facfcied
Once you have run the above command, you can go to /dev/mapper and you will notice two new partitions!

3. You now need to run the command to mount the partition to the mount point you define:

First to create mount point:
sudo mkdir /dev/mapper/mountpoint
Next to mount it:
sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/mapper/nvidia_facfcied2 /media/Z
Take note of the "2" after "nvidia_facfcied". This is the partition, before I was trying to mount the RAW drive.

Again @mostlyharmless I can't thank you enough!!!!!! I've been trying to solve this for weeks!!!
