sda1 appears to be an extended partition which means you can not mount to it. sda5 has a partition ID of ff which is a xenix bad block table and overlaps sda1.

So the drive is corrupted. I would reformat it and see what happens.

Use fdisk to wipe out the existing partitions and create a new one.

Then use mkdosfs command to format a filesystem.

You might have some windows utilities to create a new filesystem too.
