Welcome to the forums Eman!
Of course there is a solution. If you search these forums for "mount ntfs" you will find many examples. In general, you will first need to know where Windows is installed, which you can find out by typing (in terminal):
/dev/hda1 1 1966 15785248 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hda5 7160 9733 20669008+ b W95 FAT32
mkdir /mnt/windows mount -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows
mount -t vfat /dev/hda5 /mnt/windows
You may need to install drivers to be able to mount NTFS partitions (for reading or writing). Please search the forums first. If you get stuck and don't know what to do, then
ask and we will help.
