I installed NTFS 3G but now get the following error message when I try to plug in my external drive. I also get it on startup about my Windows partition.

Uninstall/ reinstall does not work.

NTFS-3G could not mount /dev/disk1s1at /volumes/freeagent GoFlex Drive because the following error occured:

/library/filesystems/fuse.fs/support/fusefs.kext failed to load- (libkern/kext) link error; check the system/ kernel logs for errors or try kextutil(8). The MacFUSE file system is not available (71)

Any help would be great. I'd hope to avoid reinstalling OS X if possible!

I had a similar problem. I went into system preferences and uninstalled NTFS-3G and then uninstalled MacFuse. I can now see and access the external drive again but read only mode.

MacFUSE allows you to extend Mac OS X's native file handling capabilities via 3rd-party file systems. It is used as a software building block by dozens of products.
