  • can you open a terminal and type in sudo fdisk -l and add the output to your post. – Neil Nov 3 '15 at 3:32
  • in ubuntu, they are not labled D and E, they are named stuff like /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda2 or something else – mchid Nov 3 '15 at 3:52

If they are on a partition? Sometimes you have to specifically mount it before you can access the files.

If that's the case, go to disks, select the partition you have your data on and then hit the little play button to mount it. from there you should be able to access things on the partition from the normal file system.
