I use NTFS-3G in order to let myself read and write to my external hard drive in the correct format. My Mac is also bootcamped with Windows 7 on the other side.

Every time I startup my Mac I get an error saying that /dev/disk04 could not be mounted, and it asks me to force or abort it.

Any ideas as to where the root of that problem might be? I think it may be related to Boot Camp.

    Open your Terminal.app from Applications/Utilities, then enter the command diskutil list. Paste the output here in the editor, and don't forget to select the text and press Ctrl-K so the code is indented properly. Also, where and when exactly is the output shown? In a window in Finder? – slhck Jan 4 '13 at 9:47
  • Ok, will go grab my mac on my lunch in a couple hours and post the output then :) for now, the errors come up in an error window when i first logon to the machine. And it also comes up when i plug a USB device in such as my harddrive. – dizzytri99er Jan 4 '13 at 9:54

Did you install NTFS-3G before or after installing Boot Camp? What solutions have you tried? See also:

NTFS-3G unmounts NTFS partitions because it "did not receive signal in 15 seconds"—what signal?

  • I'm pretty sure i added it after installing bootcamp if that creates an issue? Will try the fix on that link tonight, thanks! – dizzytri99er Jan 7 '13 at 15:28
