It appears your sda5 drive is not mounted.

Try this:

sudo mount /dev/sda5 /media/sda5

You should be able to access that partition.

I dont know some mistake...

$MFTMirr does not match $MFT (record 0).
Failed to mount '/dev/sda5': Input/output error
NTFS is either inconsistent, or you have hardware faults, or you have 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 you have SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first you must activate
it and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g.
/dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1). Please see the 'dmraid' documentation
for the details.

OK. What format is sda5?

If you open Gparted, you'll see it easily. You'll have to tell me if it is NTSF, FAT, EXT2, EXT3 or any other format before I can try to help you more.

If you don't have Gparted on your system, search for it in Synaptic or enter this in a terminal:

sudo apt-get install gparted

Then, to launch it, click System > Administration > Partition Editor.

Then please report back. Can you also attach the result of this command:

dmesg > dmesg_txt

(You might have to compress the document to upload it. You should find text document dmesg_txt in your /home/yourusername folder)

last time when you used windows did you forced it to shut down ?

The NTFS partition has been marked as "dirty" and needs to be checked by Windows. This should happen automatically when you boot into Windows, but if it doesn't or you don't have it installed you can use an XP or Vista CD recovery console to run "chkdsk /f", which will scan (and hopefully fix) any errors on the drive. Linux cannot perform repairs on NTFS, so you must use Windows for this.
