Trouble mounting an Ext2fs drive on OpenBSD

I have an existing drive from an older linux machine that I want to mount on my newly installed OpenBSD machine.  The drive shows up on /dev/wd1i.  When I type: "mount_ext2fs /dev/wd1i /mnt/media" I get this message: "/dev/wd1i: file system not clean; please fsck(8)".

I then "fsck_ext2fs /dev/wd1i", which completes all 5 phases.  When I trhen try to mount the drive, it says "Device busy".

If I reboot and try to mount, I get the same original message.  

I also tried to put an entry into the fstab table to see if I could get it to mount via startup: "/dev/wd1i /mnt/media extfs default 1 2"
This does not mount the drive.

Any suggestions?  Could there be issues between ext2fs and ffs?  How could I check if the drive is bad?
