@smartboyhw Dear, I already wrote answer but it took sometime to arrive – K.K Patel Dec 12 '12 at 12:33
Just for clarification - What do you mean by detect? Not able to see in nautilus or not present in /media or what? – Hashken Dec 12 '12 at 12:40
@K.KPatel OK sorry:P – smartboyhw Dec 12 '12 at 13:10
Try opening "Disk Utility" and see if you can mount the partition from there. Modify your question accordingly for a more useful answer. – To Do Dec 12 '12 at 13:12

You should install ntfs-3g, Install it using this command in Terminal

sudo apt-get install ntfs-3g
