Hi I see you're new to Ubuntu (as am I) it looks like you have a lot of unallocated space, this is empty space not being used by any of your partitions. If you install a program called gparted you should be able to extend your Ubuntu partition to the unallocated space. The problem may have occurred if you did not specify the partitions correctly during installation.

Install gparted through terminal by using the command

sudo apt-get install gpartedHope this works for you. ;)

When using Disk utility, select each partition and then click "Mount" from the options below.

You cannot mount SWAP partitions.

You cannot mount FREE partitions.

You can mount the partitions which are marked NTFS and EXT3.

Your EXT3 partition would be better served as EXT4. The NTFS partitons would be safer and more transportable as FAT partitons.

You may consider using your home dir and subfolders instead of separate partitions. Using separate partitions for commonly accessed files s annoying and ugly in Ubuntu. It may be in your best interest to just use your home folder and make subdirectories. That's what your home folder is for.

You may want to consider reformatting with a 500meg swap, 40 gig EXT4 for ubuntu and leave the rest for your videos and what not.
