Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

What exactly are the problems you are having with CD's and Ubuntu One? And where are the original files, and where are they going? If you just want to move them from one partition to another on the same computer, then you can write to the ntfs partition from ubuntu. If I remember correctly your windows partition should be listed in Places, but if not you may need to mount it manually. Make sure you have write permission though, which may or may not be the default.
If you are moving between two different computers, then I would try to get the CD working, or if you have a flash drive or external hard drive, that could work too. Another option is to set up shared folders on Ubuntu using Samba, and then access them from Windows, assuming both computers are on the same network.
Hope I'm in right area for this post, I apologise if I am not.
I am trying to transfer a series of files that were on my IPhone from Ubuntu to Windows. I though the easiest way would be to burn them on a disk, however, I am encountering problems.
Music seems to be ok, but the podcasts, videaos and movies seem to be another issue all together.
I did try Ubuntu 1 (Cloud) but not having much fun there either?
Can anyone help with this?
This is important to me because there are a lot of files involving my father who recently passed away and Mum is sweating on me getting these files back.
CD disks, DVD disks, USB flash drives, upload them somethere and copy back, run ftp server on linux machine, and download files from another machine, etc.
You could also install ext2ifs driver onto windows (read-only mode) and access them normally. If your ubuntu is formatted into jfs/reiserfs, ext2ifs isn't going to work though.
