Unable to find partion using ubuntu but no problems when booting windows.


My set up it this: 250GB HDD with windows and a 500GB HDD partioned into two parts, one with ubuntu installed and one with no-os.

The plan was to load music, movies and other such things that I may want on both windows and linux onto the no-os partion of my 500GB HDD. However I can't see the other partion when using ubuntu. The 500GB HDD if formatted with NTFS but I assume this is not a problem since ubuntu has no problems using the files on the 250GB HDD.

So the question is how can I see the other partion on the 500GB HDD?

Note: I am good with computers but I'm definatly Linux n00b. And did I spell partion right? because its been underlined in red but there's no helpful corrections.

Thanks!

/dev/sda1 seems to be your 500Gb and it appears to be mounted at the following location /media/disk. Are you sure you have Ubuntu on the 500Gb drive?

Yes, the 500GB is partitioned into two spaces, one 488GB and one 12GB. /media/disk seems to be my 250GB, although I'm not 100% (the button style address bar thing says it is media disk)
Ubuntu is on the 12GB partition.

Thanks!
