There a software to let Windows see your Ubuntu drive, but I don't remember the name.By default only Ubuntu can see Windows,to solve your problem you can also save file under Windows,when using Ubuntu or you can create a shared partition where to save file so that you can access with both OS.
I hope this can help you :) .

The software is called EXT2FS, but this will only work with EXT2 and EXT3 filesystems.
The home page is at http://e2fsprogs.sourceforge.net/ext2.html

Linux drives can be read from windows using explorer2fs or similar softwares... disk writes from xp is not possible as far as i know...

If you are on Ubuntu, you will get list of all drives(including xp drives) in the side pane of the file browser... just click on them to mount... on older systems, you may have to use mount/ntfs-3g command from the terminal... not sure really ;)
