How do you do friends?

I had Ubuntu 12.04 and everthing was working well, but recently I decided to change my partition tables. Now I have windows 8, Ubuntu 12.04.1 and Backtrack5 R3 on my laptop. my partitions are:

/dev/sda1   *        2048    58597375    29297664    7  HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
/dev/sda2        58601472   976773119   459085824    5  Extended
/dev/sda5        58605120   797020159   369207520    7  HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
/dev/sda6       797030400   933763071    68366336   83  Linux
/dev/sda7       933765120   972834815    19534848   83  Linux
/dev/sda8       972836864   976773119     1968128   82  Linux swap / Solaris

At first I had Windows 8 installed, then Backtrack5 R3, and last I installed Ubuntu 12.04.1. Afterward, I realized that my Ubuntu nautilus doesn't show other partitions or usb/cd/dvd drives. I searched in Google and various Linux or Ubuntu forums, But I can't find any solution, just one thing... "gvfs-gdu-volume" caused the nautilus left panel to show other partitions which I hadn't mounted, but when I run top I don't see this program.
How nautilus can show other partitions or drives in its left panel once again?
