Linux can't read the partition table. That means either it (the
partition table) can't be automatically detected or the drive is
toast. What do you see if you interrogate the partition table:
sudo fdisk -l /dev/sda
Based on the previous what happens when you try to mount a partition
with something like this:
sudo mount -t ntfs -o ro /dev/sda[n] /media/usbhdd
where "[n]" is the NTFS partition number detected with fdisk and
assumes the mount point "/media/usbhdd" already exists. If the mount
point doesn't exist simply execut "sudo mkdir -p /media/usbhdd".
