ntfs partions not mounting


Ok until recently, they did fstab mount quite happily, but now, they don't

Ok the error I get is:
Code:
Mountall mount /media/win7 [1089] terminated with status 21
My fstab has not changed but here it is:
Code:

Also now, grub can't find the windows partion either

I have just spent a good couple of hours googling and searching through forums, to no avail.

Oh if I make the windows drive the first avail, then it boots just fine.

Any help would be apreciated, thanks.

the very very old "ntfs" driver is READ ONLY and might not be installed( depending on what distro you are using )

use "ntfs-3g"

the line should read
"/dev/sdc1 /media/win7 ntfs-3g users,umask=0222,ro 0 0

for READ ONLY access to sdc1

I tried that, this sadly also produces the same error.

I had a spare HD around so I put xp, on it with ntfs, and it also produces the same error.

I am not a noob, but am in this area.

Thanks for your sugestions John VV

For the Grub problem you mentioned, Is it just that the NTFS paritition is not offered in the Grub boot menu?

Does...

Code:
update-grub
...fix the "Grub not seeing the NTFS partition problem"?

Boot to a live cd and see if you can at least see the windows partition. Then try to mount it either read only or ntfs-3g.
