I have two hard drives, one where Windows 7(C) is installed and the other Ubuntu 12.04(D).

I can't find the other files on D (like movies) using Ubuntu. But I do find them running Windows.

How can I find the files running Ubuntu without having to copy them over to C?

Maybe your partition isn't mounted on your Ubuntu system. Type

sudo fdisk -l

and there you can show all partition table, types, sizes. You can mount using

sudo mount /dev/sdXX

where XX is number of partion (eg. sda5).

After you mount partion you can access all files from it.
