Have you tried booting back into windows and doing a scan disk..If windows didnt shut down cleanly or file system isnt clean might be reason linux wont mount it..I remember on my external usb drive..Under windows if i just turned it off and then booted into linux later..linux wouldnt mount it..had to boot back into windows and mount it and unmount it cleanly.Then it worked.
