Mount Crashed Hard Drive

Hey guys,

My roommate's sister's hard drive went down, wouldn't boot, and so I
told him to stick it into my machine to see if we could mount it.  It
wasn't able to mount the hard drive automatically saying that the
logfile indicated an unclean shutdown.  I tried to force a mount at
the command line using "mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /media/disk -o
force" but it seems to lock up and doesn't do anything.  Is there
anything else I can try?  Thanks,
