|You're not seeing it because you don't know how to mount the drive. However, mounting the drive won't help unless you can copy the files over your network or to another USB drive, once you see them. |
I'll tell you how to mount the drive. If you can see it, I'll tell you how to copy them. Connect the drive to the usb port, boot with the Ubuntu CD. When you get to a command prompt, use the following commands. Press enter after each command.
The windows drive will look something like:
/dev/sda1 blocks ntfs
If there are two partitions marked ntfs, the larger one will be the one you want. Use the spacing that I have when you type the commands
The next commands are:
ln -s /dev/sda1 /mnt/ntfs
mount - ntfs /dev/sda1 /mnt/ntfs
ls -asl | more
Then cd to the directory where your files are.
