    Error mounting /dev/sdb1 at /run/media/client2/MR.OPTIMUS: Command-line `mount -t “ntfs” -o “uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid,uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=0077,fmask=0177” “/dev/sdb1” “/run/media/client2/MR.OPTIMUS”‘ exited with non-zero exit status 13: $MFTMirr does not match $MFT (record 0).
    Failed to mount ‘/dev/sdb1’: Input/output error
    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.
    How do I overcome this problem. It occurs during 2nd time to make HDD as ntfs to access through the centos 7 platform.

    Hi,
    Thanks for sharing such a helpful guide to mount NTFS filesystem in linux. Its so clear and easy to understand.
    I’m facing one more issue. I’ve enabled EPEL and installed NTFS3G. But not able to get fuse installed. I’m getting below error-

    [root@localhost2 etc]# yum install fuse
    Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security
    This system is not registered with RHN.
    RHN support will be disabled.
    Setting up Install Process
    No package fuse available.
    Nothing to do

    [root@localhost2 etc]# uname -a
    Linux localhost2.localdomain2 2.6.18-194.el5 #1 SMP Tue Mar 16 21:52:39 EDT 2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    I need it badly, please help.
    Thanks in advance.!

      You need to enable beta repo by modifying /etc/yum.repos.d/rhel-beta.repo file.

      # vi /etc/yum.repos.d/rhel-beta.repo
      

      Make sure you set enable=1 and give a try again.

      # yum search fuse
      # yum install fuse

    Hi Ravi,

    I could successfully install ntfs-3g in CentOS 6.4 and mount NTFS partitions.

    The method that worked for me was slighly different than yours.
    I used wget to download the “.tgz” archive directly from Tuxera.com and uncompressed it. Then, I downloaded the gcc compiler to build ntfs-3g from the sources using the well known “./configure”, “make”, “make install” sequence.

    However, the NTFS partitions are still not listed as drives in CentOS GUI.
    Hence, I cannot “drag and drop” files from them to the CD/DVD burner.

    Any idea how to make NTFS partitions displayed in the GUI ?

    Regards.
