Did allow your computer to complete a full shutdown process while on your Windows partition?
If not, it will be flagged to Ubuntu as not safe or damaged and it won't mount.

* Re-start to Windows and close properly
* Force it to mount to once mount via command-line:
sudo mount -f /dev/sdx /media/amountpoint

Well, I did get a blue screen and windows shut down before i got on ubuntu, so thats probably it. Thanks

Please note that, although rare, forcing a mount can lead to data loss.
