1) Do you never have this problem with DESCARGAS?
2) If you do "sudo mount -a" does it always mount, or do you still have a 
3) What sort of devices are they?  Are they internal or external?

My wild guess would be that you have shut down your system without umounting 
COMPLETADAS (marking the ntfs filesystem as dirty, and requiring it to run 
either scandisk or fsck before it can be mounted).
