So, I'm curious as to why it shows up here, but not in fdisk (which only shows my data stick, sdb1).
Oh, I'm also curious as to what you suggest next :-)
Thanks again for your continued help.

Try the following commands
sudo mount /dev/sda /mnt
sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
There is a space between the "sda" and the "/mnt"

There might be error messages.

Run the hd diagnostics that tux suggested. I don't know of any free software that can recover MFT. I know there are some, it's just that I don't know of any.
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt -t ntfs -r
$MFT has invalid magic.
Failed to load $MFT: Input/output error
Failed to mount '/dev/sda1': Input/output error

It ran for about 8 minutes before I got any error messages.
