    Then you are asking in the wrong place. You can try posting in the Windows Discussions subforum at http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=170
    It is possible that you can use an Ubuntu LiveCD to try and mount the partition or to fix it, but the tools available in linux for ntfs drives don't tend to work very well when the drives aren't working. I think your best bet is to get help from windows users for now.
    I will request that a moderator move this thread for you.

    Is this volume a RAID array by any chance? Windows XP by default does not have drivers for most RAID controllers. If it is not RAID, is it SATA? Again, Windows may need the driver for the controller.

    Thanks,
