C? D?

It does not work like that in ubuntu

what you call C, I suppose is sda1 (or sda(some-other-number))
everything in / is likely to be on that.

What you call D is probably sdb1 (or sdb(some-other-number))

The easiest way to set up viewing Windows partitions is to use the NTFS configuration tool.


sudo apt-get install ntfs-config

System, Admininstration, NTFS Configuration Tool.

It will ask you the name you want for the mountpoint and that mountpoint will be in /media. Enable it to write to the partition, and it will set up fstab for you so you can access your Windows partition.
