cant find videos, pictures and music

Asked by khaez on 2009-11-04

I am using dual boot for my Ubuntu, (installed using wubi)
I have 2 partitions, C and D.
My C drive is for my windows files, and drivers.
While my D drive is for my vids, music and pics.
I installed Ubuntu in my D drive, and when i start Ubuntu, i cant seem to find my media files (which are located in D)
I tried looking around, but i cant find someone with a similar problem (or maybe i missed it)
If someone could help me, I would be grateful.
Thanks in advance.

I don't know much about wubi installations....
But are you able to access the media files from windows...
And if you finally installed Ubuntu on the D partition then shouldn't the D partition be formatted before the installation.
I could be wrong..

@shredder :
Im able to access the media files from windows,
And no, the D partition is not formatted before installation.
Im not sure why, but if im not mistaken, it says that if installed through wubi,
Ubuntu will act like a windows application or something.

I never installed using wubi but after reading their faq page it seems that windows partitions are accessible in /host and /media directories.
If you are still unable to see the partitions then it could be some error..

@shredder:
Just for additional information, i am able to access the C drive, but not the D.
But, i will try out what u mentioned, and get back here with the details.
Thanks.
