Sounds like your hard drive crashed. Time to call Dish and get it replaced.
:( After my DVR 625 spent a few days intermittently freezing up I got the 05a1 error message and have not been able to access my DVR. I have already contacted Dish for a replacement, but I feel a bit hurt about the shows I lost. What causes this kind of hard drive failure? Is there anything I can do to prevent it from happening again? Note: We have experienced a few power failures lately, and all the tv's blink when the heater comes on.

hard drives crash. it's just a matter of fact with this type of media. there is nothing you can do about it. your recorded shows are gone. get over it. just be glad it wasn't the hard drive on your computer.
