Now I want to use drive 3 as a common drive (music and pictures nd documents). Bet windows and linux

Hi. Welcome to the forums :popcorn:

We need some info. Please post the output of

sudo fdisk -l

from an Ubuntu terminal. You'll find it under Applications > Accessories > Terminal. Your password will not show up as any character or asteisks * when you type it. Just type and hit Enter blindly ;-)

Linux support NTFS drives and you can mount them in Ubuntu. But it would be better to know your setup.

See this link for a workaround.
