How to Fix External Hard Drive not Mounting on Mac?

Hi, I recently bought a new apple Macbook Air running Monterey. When I go to use my external hard drive, it won’t mount. It works on my old Apple Macbook Air running El Capitan but not on my new Mac. I have downloaded NTFS for Mac where it sees the drive but won’t mount it. I tried Disk Utility where it gives an error code 49153. Can anyone help please?

Hello, here are some fixes you can take.

(1)Uninstall the old NTFS driver for Mac and install iBoysoft NTFS for Mac. This tool is better at mounting and writing your NTFS drive seamlessly on Mac.

(2)Repair your drive in Disk Utility.

(3)Log out and log back in the Apple menu.

(4)Restart your Mac in Safe Mode.

(5)Quit the fsck process.

(6)Disable Time Machine backup.

If these fixes can't help you, maybe you have to reformat the drive. Pay attention to doing a backup on Mac.
