I'll try to best understand but please correct grammar.

If by memory you mean disk space, think of /media being the drive letters for Windows they aren't actually on Ubuntu's partition but they are there for you to see.

I can't understand your second question but if not related to this, I suggest you make a new question for it.

i am sorry i don't speak english very well, what i wanted to ask if i could do the partition with /media mount point without fearing nothing. – meissa Nov 12 '12 at 17:45
Leave /media on your main partition. You have nothing to worry about, it is an empty folder which links to other partitions. – spudowiar Nov 14 '12 at 18:22
