sudo is superuser and should be able to browse and see any folder. What method are you using to mount them and what do you want to do with them using superuser rights? – chesedo Jul 12 '13 at 15:37
"one is administrator and another is sudo user": is not clear. Any sudo-user is an administrator of the system. – guntbert Jul 12 '13 at 16:23
But sudo user can't see any extended partition in his user account. So please tell me how to automount on startup. – Rakesh Jul 15 '13 at 5:54

First thing to do is to make an fstab entry for the drive(s)

Then create a new group, add the users to the group, and then recursively modify permissions on the drive to according to your needs.
