Try to mount the partition using the terminal and see what happens. If there are any error messages, post them here.

next time Please add more info like
Your distro
what you are trying to mount
if we knew it was a ntfs partition we could have suggested installing ntfs-3g and the line(s) to add to /etc/fstab
to have it auto mount.
