There are lots of possible causes for this:

 - You don't have ntfs-3g installed

 - /dev/sda isn't a filesystem (maybe /dev/sda1?)

 - The filesystem type really is some unknown new thing.

(The last one is least likely)

Try running the 'file' or 'vfs-type' command on the filesystem, or run
'virt-filesystems --all --long' on the disk and see what it says.
