Didn't you talk about sdb5 previously?

Well, sda1 isn't mounted at /media/sda1 but maybe at / or somewhere else.

Now THAT was a big mistake, IMHO. Not that you damaged something in this
case but generally if you follow instructons you should not blindly
continue if there was an error. Next time you might really damage
Constantinos' instructions were this:
sudo umount /media/sdb5
sudo fsck -c /dev/sdb5
If the instructions are already made for your particular situation it is
easiest to just copy one line at a time from the email and paste it to
your konsole window to avoid typos or other errors. And if you encounter
errors and don't KNOW it is harmless, please ask again before you
