A couple of days ago my PC crashed and when I rebooted it gave me the following error:

"/usr: UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY; RUN fsck MANUALLY."

So I ran fsck & the system booted ok.

Now I wanted to back up some stuff in case this happens again, but I cannot mount my disk on key or external HD.

When I run:

"mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/diskonkey"

as I've always done it gives me this error:

"/dev/sda1: Input/output error
mount: you must specify the filesystem type"

I tried sda1, sda2, ..., sdb1, sdb2, ...
I tried running mount with "-t vfat", but it still does not work.

I'd appreciate your help.

Try formatting it (backup anything on it first) using "mkfs -t vfat /dev/sda1"
