    @ Captain James T kirk: sorry mate for being lazy and not putting up a solution...actually the issue has evolved with time and the solution i course by taking help from some other ubuntu forums... I have an unfinished help written for my problem and the solution and I shall post it soon. To be true, I was first going to shout back at you and then I realized that you are right. THanks for pointing it out. I shall surely post the help soon in a separate thread and post the link here.

    (I am mounting a disk on through different mean (ntfs/cifs) depending on whether the Ubuntu is running natively or under a VM (in which it has no access to the partition. I managed to get it to work with the information from this topic, thanks!)
