Can't see my drives in KUBUNTU


I have just installed KUBUNTU on my system , the strange thing is that i can not find my hard drives in kubuntu !
I have a 200 G SATA hard disk .

i didnt have this problem , when i ran ubuntu from a live cd .

Does anyone know how can i access my hard disk ?!

All your hard drives and partitions should be visible by typing
Code:
media:/
in to the address bar of a konqueror file browser.

You could also check the output of
Code:
fdisk -l
from a terminal window to see what hard drives kubuntu recognises.

I trie this Media:/ as you said , then my hard drives appeared . but when i click them , to go inside . i saw this message

hal-storage-fixed-mount-all-options refused uid 1000

also i can not use konsole.
it asks me the username and the password
when i enter the username , then i wanna enter the password but it doesn't type,until i press enter , then it prompts me that you have entered an invalid password .

All linux terminals are set up so that they do not show the password being typed (not even by using asterixes to mask the characters). This is to hide how many characters are in your password, in case someone is looking at your pc screeen when you type it in. Just type your password in at the password prompt (it is being entered, honestly) and then press enter.

The refused message it gave you sounds as if you don't have the permissions to access the hard drives. To fix this, you may need to change the contents of your /etc/fstab file so that you do have permissions. Can you post the contents of this file here, and also the results of fdisk -l in konsole?
