this is the message:

Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 13: $MFTMirr does not match $MFT 
(record 0).
Failed to mount '/dev/sdb1': Input/output error
NTFS is either inconsistent, or there is a hardware fault, or it's a
SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware. In the first case run chkdsk /f on Windows
then reboot into Windows twice. The usage of the /f parameter is very
important! If the device is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first activate
it and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g.
/dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1). Please see the 'dmraid' documentation
for more details.

Do what the message tells you to do. Connect the hard disk to a
computer running Windows XP or newer and run "CHKDSK /F" on it.

No, you can't do this from Ubuntu (to the best of my knowledge). To
fix a Windows disk you need a Windows computer.

It may be that your friend with Windows does not know how to safely
eject drives, in which case it's up to you to teach him.
