I unmounted the /dev/hda3 partition. Then when I run "fsck.vfat /dev/hda3" on it it will ask me if I want to correct an error. I choose "1" (correct) but it says
"Leaving filesystem unchanged."
and closes.

Does anyone know why it doesn't correct the error?

From the man page: "If -a and -r are absent, the file system is only checked, but not repaired". In other words, try running "fsck.vfat -r /dev/hda3".
