My contents of a drive are not visible in Ubuntu, but they are visible in Windows. This drive does not contain either OS. I can see its contents in the terminal however.

Using nautilus browser I can see the icon of my drive but when I click on it it's contents are not visible .

Output of sudo blkid:

When you say the contents are not visible in Ubuntu then, do you mean they are not visible in the Nautilus file browser, but are visible in the terminal? –  Greg Kramida Jan 7 at 19:22
yeah @GregKramida –  Mayank Jan 7 at 19:35
Where in the file system is the drive mount point? –  Greg Kramida Jan 7 at 19:44
Actually i did't understand your question ... Will you elaborate ?? –  Mayank Jan 7 at 19:48
Where do you have to go in the terminal to see the files on the drive? –  Greg Kramida Jan 7 at 19:49
