unable to recognise disk

Asked by samuel loi de yun on 2010-05-16

hi, i'm a new user. i did a partial installation of ubuntu on my windows7 then when i start ubuntu i notice something is amiss 1 partition of my hard disk is not recognisable by ubuntu.
my hard disk is partition into 2 parts 1 part is for the OS for windows 7, C drive
another part is for other application like movie and games, D drive
but ubuntu seems to be only able to be able to recognise C drive and mount it but not D drive.
is there something i did wrong during installation?cause i installed Ubuntu on D drive

thx in advance for people helping me...

did you install it using wubi? if so please click on 'places' in the top of your screen click 'home folder' there in the sidepane click on 'filesystem' there search for directory 'host' open it and it should contain your drive. I think
