Ubuntu: Partion help - Unable to access windows partition


I have partioned my harddrive when I installed ubuntu 10.10 Desktop edition, 32-bit. But, after I installed it I can no longer access the Windows partition. I have never played with Linux OS before, so this is all new to me (Hence me posting in the newbie board) so I would like some help. I will provide a screen-shot of the partition.

Sorry if I sound unclear, just ask if you need me to re-explain.

tl;dr Help me access windows partition plox.

There are two file systems in the "Places" menu. My ubuntu drive (18 gigs) and my Windows drive (62 gigs) but I mean, I don't think I can access it.

Edit: Yeah, it's showing it in the "Places" menu, yet it's not lettign me click or access the 62 gig. :/

If it's installed, why are you running from the liveCD? (the screen-shot you posted is from a LiveCD running envoirment, and there is "operations pending" on gparted ...)

I think it's because of the "operations pending" on gparted

Well, because I was messing around with it. I did a live boot and clicked "Try ubuntu without installing" and was just too lazy to move over to the installed version.

if you installed with the instructions here, there is no need to use gparted at all (all the resize the partitions is done by the install process)

LOL. I used the ISO. My friend was like "LOL GET UNETBOOTIN USE DAT." And I was like "LOL, KAY, CAUSE LAIK, YOU SEEM TO KNOW A LOT ABOUT UBUNTU." He does, so I listened, but I'm a newfag of Ubuntu.
tl;dr - I used unetbootin.

I think I have tried that. BUT. I honestly think it's gone. LOL. I'll just re-install windows or something. Cause it asked me to run memory tests, or Ubuntu when I just ran it without the USB.
