    Try man mount or see google etc.
    How to mount partitions and filesystems in Linux

    Any rate we might want to start with: What is /dev/sdc1 above? It looks to be like a fat32 files system that has the bootable flag set.
    (I am just pointing out the obvious)

    Well looking at your cylinders you have a geometry of 952 but are using 953.
    I've had this problem recently with nefarious programs installing a hidden boot disk in the unreadable 0 cylinder.
    Run testdisk from the CLI, create log, It'll probably tell you that you have hidden sectors, run the deeper search till 100 % then show files "P" and copy any unrecognised programs to your HDD.
    Ultimately you'll have to copy off your data and fdisk and mkfs (cfdisk will fail with wrong partition info and gparted should never be used to make a bootable USB).
    Let us know your results
