Open a terminal. Type:

su -
(enter root password)
mkdir /media/d
mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda3 /media/d
Your files should be accessible when you use Nautilus to browse to /media/d

I'm assuming that D is /dev/sda3. If it's /dev/sda6 then the mount command would be

mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda6 /media/d

Failed to mount '/dev/sda1': Invalid argument
The device '/dev/sda1' doesn't have a valid NTFS.
Maybe you selected the wrong device? Or the whole disk instead of a
partition (e.g. /dev/hda, not /dev/hda1)? Or the other way around?

Devices: sda . sda1 . sda2 . sda3 . sda5 . sda6 [D:\ It's Workek]

su -
/sbin/fdisk -l
This will list all partitions on all disks. From there you need to determine what partitions you actually want to mount to access your windows files.

mkdir /media/d
mount -t vfat /dev/sda5 /media/d

Edit: /dev/sda5 is shown as a VFAT partition.
