Code:
Are the other devices, the ones that work, formatted NTFS?
some are NTFS and some are FAT32 all still work just this drive that used to work no longer plays ball.

Drives do fail, both spinning rust and SSD.

NTFS is either inconsistent, or there is a hardware fault, or it's a
SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware. In the first case run chkdsk /f on Windows
then reboot into Windows twice. The usage of the /f parameter is very
important! If the device is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first activate
it and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g.
/dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1). Please see the 'dmraid' documentation
for more details.
Have you tried what that message told you.? It is possible that the ntfs filesystem is corrupted as that says. Similar to a corrupted ext4 filesystem that requires doing an fsck before it can be mounted, the windows filesystems are also required to be clean for mounting.

Took me a while to find a working windows unit in order to run chkdsk. That took approx 6 hours to run but the drive now automounts (again) albeit I reckon it is taking longer than it used to. Which may be the case as dmesg still shows

Makes me suspicious of the reliability of the drive now, especially as I didn't rip the drive out mid session so don't know why the ntfs partition should have got corrupted.

Drives do fail, and the corruption could have been caused by that. I have seen a few posts in the recent threads about the passport drives specifically with failures.
