eSATA drive won't mount


Having trouble mounting a 6TB G-RAID drive via E-sata. Transferring files onto hard drive via MAC OSX and then writing TAR files to LTO via Linux. When attempting to mount drive I see this:

Error mounting system-managed device /dev/sdc3: Command-line `mount "/mnt/cbe238a1-589d-3034-bc58-b747bfc28b5b"' exited with non-zero exit status 32: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdc3,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

When I go into my disk utility, I see the device listed, but the size of my MAC Extended partition (tried it with journaling enabled and disabled) as being only 1.6TB (the amount of unused space). Another partition, which is labeled as "Free Space" and w/o a file system, is the size of the used space on the drive (about 4.4TB). However, the drive was never partitioned in Mac OSX.

When running a dmesg command, I receive this information (this is the end of the log)

Hoping to figure out a way to get linux to see the drive as a whole and mount without having to reformat and re-copy 4TB worth of information. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

HFS+ (Apple's filesystem) isn't supported very well under Linux in some cases, such as volumes greater than 2 TB. If possible, you could reformat to NTFS which is much better supported under Linux.
