What fs did your windows install use? NTFS or FAT32? You know the mount syntax?
Code:
mount -t (fs) /dev/(yourdevice) /mnt/(mountpoint)

These are file formats. try mount -t ntfs etc. first, if nothing succeeds, try mount -t vfat etc.
And one more thing: try to type clearly. The above sentence typed by you looks like this:
Thse rae fajl fmorats. Try mnuot t- ftns etc. frist.

And that does not help us answer your questions.

Have you tried fdisk to see all of your drives, partitions, etc.?

In a terminal, type "fdisk -l" and post the output. (That's a LC "L"--not a one)
