Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

The answers to similar questions have not been useful to me.

I installed Ubuntu 11.10 with Wubi on Window 7. My HD has two main partitions: C and D. Ubuntu is installed in C, where all my media files are and only reads the D partition. The C files are not in media directory as was suggested in an answer to a similar question. Everything else works fine, so far.

1 Answer 1

Linux systems have trouble with exFat partitions. It is suggested you pull your data off any exFat partitions and re-format them to a supported format.
