from the live cd you can just use the sudo command (no password needed).

You
sudo mount /dev/yourdrive /where/you/want/to/mount
cd /where/you/mounted Then you have access to your files.

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo mount /dev/media/home/aurore/images/photos
mount: can't find /dev/media/home/aurore/images/photos in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
This is what i get!! All i want is to get the access to those files so that i may copy them. Other wise can i repair this error 18 ?

Dude... come on. Your drive is actually hd0 which is aliased as an /dev/hda (ide drive) or /dev/sda (sata drive) and each partition will be /dev/sda#. This can be found using
fdisk -l. So... run fdisk and it will show you what each partition is named then you make a folder in /media or wherever you want to mount it. Such as /media/mydrive using
sudo mkdir /media/mydrive. Then you take the information that fdisk gave you to use
sudo mount /dev/sda1 /media/mydrive. Then you can open a folder in the drive and do as thou wilt.
