Code:
modprobe ntfs-3g
FATAL: Module ntfs_3g not found.

for some reason, it says ntfs-3g is not installed, but i can see i have an older version of ntfs-3g in the adept manager, version 1.913-2ubuntu

So the battle is almost won. What does your fstab file look like now?

You didn't say what distro you have, but not many of them make the directories for you. Ubuntu is one that does not.

Try:

sudo mkdir /media/disk_3
sudo mkdir /media/disk_4
sudo mkdir /media/disk_5
sudo mkdir /media/disk_6

You can't mount if you don't have a directory to mount into.
