"Mount: Operation not supported"

This error came up yesterday for one of my hard drives (it worked prior, though).

bash-3.00# mount /dev/hdf1 /mnt/hdf
mount: Operation not supported

So... yeah, i'm root, the device exists, the mount point exists, permissions are default like other HD's...

I've exhausted google's search functino for this, and I can't find anything. And yes, important stuff on the HD that I would wish to be saved

What was the file system on it? You might want to do a fsck.ext3 or reiserfsck and try to rebuild the filesystem. Also, do you have other partitions on that hard drive that is mounting correctly (hdf2)?
