It seems that the partition is likely not an ext3.  It also seems to be
mounted by the hot plug manager (it is set up as 'managed' as you can
see by the options).  Did you just recently install it?

If there are no problems try using fdisk to check/change the partitons
to what you want (ext3 I assume) and format the filesystem, then change
the line in fstab to reflect it properly and it should work.
