If Windows has trouble reading a Windows proprietary filesystem, why would you expect Linux to do any better ?.
Issue a mount command as sudo/root - that way you'll get to see any messages issued rather than a GUI obfuscating things. This presumes you have ntfs-3g installed - does Debian allow that ?.
