EZ-Drive is microsoft's implementation of LVM.  It is not a standard
NTFS partition.  I don't know if mount currently handles it.  Perhaps
someone has an answer?

If you boot windows, right click "my computer and select  manage,
there is a branch of the tree for managing drives.  Using that
utility, you can convert the drive to regular NTFS and mount it under
Linux.
