Add the disc to /etc/fstab. Your create a backup and can edit the file with these 2 lines:

sudo cp /etc/fstab /etc/fstab.old
gksudo gedit /etc/fstab


This assumes sda3 is your ntfs partition and it should be mounted into /media/windows/

/dev/sda3   /media/windows  ntfs    defaults    0   0

So change sda3 to your partitionname and the windows directory name to something you like better. You can use fdisk to see what ntfs is named in Ubuntu:

sudo fdisk -l
