NTFS mount error in ubuntu

ERROR

$LogFile indicates unclean shutdown (0, 0)
Failed to mount '/dev/sda1': Operation not supported
Mount is denied because NTFS is marked to be in use. Choose one action:

Choice 1: If you have Windows then disconnect the external devices by
clicking on the 'Safely Remove Hardware' icon in the Windows
taskbar then shutdown Windows cleanly.

Choice 2: If you don't have Windows then you can use the 'force' option for
your own responsibility. For example type on the command line:

mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 media/win -o force

Or add the option to the relevant row in the /etc/fstab file:

/dev/sda1 media/win ntfs-3g force 0 0

SOLUTION

1) Run Disk identifire
sudo fdisk -l

2) Create a new mount point in your system
sudo mkdir /media/chaami

3) Mount your NTFS drive to your mount point by using ntfs-3g
sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/hda1 /media/chaami -o force
