Unhappy Accessing NTFS partition content

Hello Everyone
I am running Kubuntu 8.04. I have two hdd installed. /dev/sda1 is NTFS, /dev/sdb1 is the bootable partition.(I'm dual booting win2000)It is NTFS. /dev/sdb5 is my root linux partion.
The problem I'm having is that when I wish to write to /dev/sda1, a particular folder, none of the folders appear when I try to save a document.The folders do appear when you access through dolphin. The folders were created in win2k. Of course the folders appear in win2k. Help would be greatly appreciated

I solved the problem. Used sudo mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 /media/data
