Cannot read file transfered from window to linux via rsync

I backup my files from window XP to linux machine
by calling rsync from cygwin.
When I try to access these file on linux, I could not.

The rsync command I use:

rysnc -avz * root@machine1:/mnt/dr/
I notice that the owner and file permission got screwed up
when viewing on the linux machine.

Therefore, I try to use root user to change owner and persmission
using chown, chmod. However, nothing works. I got a in/output error.
Is the problem because of my disk is failed or the file permission problem?

#chown root
chown: cannot access `': Input/output error
