I'm only guessing here, but I think some of the data in your superblock
is corrupt. The interesting part is why "Jmicron Raid Member" would get
stuck in there. It's almost as though a mobo tried to make the USB drive
part of a Mobo software raid.
In any case, now that you can mount the drive, I would copy off all the
data from it, then do a complete badblocks check. Assuming the drive is
still ok, do a re-partition/re-format.
