How to solve mounting error when running docker?

I am running docker on an Amazon m2.large instance running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
(GNU/Linux 3.13.0-24-generic x86_64).

Here is the output of docker info

    Here is the output of docker version:

    I am running docker as follows:

    docker run \
       --volume /mnt/dir_1:/outputs:rw \
       --volume /mnt/dir_2:/inputs:ro \
       --detach=false \
       --cidfile=/mnt/dir_3/container_id \
       my_image \
       arg_1 \

    However I get the following error:

    2014/07/01 22:26:59 Error response from daemon: Error mounting '/dev/mapper/docker-202:16-475138-e1d927e16afbf1537f66bb0b6f3df56be7160cea7abefe19059aff2c00c55a0a-init' on '/mnt/docker/devicemapper/mnt/e1d927e16afbf1537f66bb0b6f3df56be7160cea7abefe19059aff2c00c55a0a-init': invalid argument

    I already ran this command successfully once and it produced the expected output. Now however it returns this error. How do I solve this? Thanks.

    The solution to this appears to be to move away from the default driver ‘devmapper’ and use the ‘btrfs’ driver which a correspondingly formatted filesystem. An even more performant option, is to use the ‘overlayfs’ driver.

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
