    earlier it was working until i tried to install TURBO C++ using wine
    I think it changed some settings
    I tried to mount it using terminal but it says that the file is not found in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab.

    It sounds like you've got a problem with mounting things using the GUI and are not so familiar with mounting using the command line.

    Ubuntu 14.04 is no longer supported. That means, no more updates and we don't support it either. We can help you to copy files to backup storage and install a supported release of Ubuntu (I suggest 18.04).

    Re: help with 14.04 LTS

    In addition to updating to a current release, when posting in the future post relevant information. You indicate you tried to mount but neglect to indicate "how" you did that. If you were using some GUI method or if you used a terminal command you should post exactly what it was. The message about not being found in fstab or mtab is generally because you did not do a complete mount command, referring specifically to the device partition. It is always a good idea to keep notes when you are installing new software such as you were so that if you run into problems, you have some information on what you did which you can post and hopefully, someone will be familiar with the software and can help.
