ok downloaded and read the manual...came to the decision that i dont need to do that because i prefer to have a working computer and i dont have a sufficient grasp of the concepts presented to even read the section. ok here is what im trying to do: i use acidrip on my linux side to rip my movies to my harddrive so i dont have to carry my discs. everything works on that end. what i want to do is to put them on my usb external so i dont have to take up any extra space on my harddrive and when i feel like watching them i can use one of the media players i have on the windows7 side. and i have an android fone and i found a good "itunes" type app for it but its a linux app. how can i safely get my ubuntu guest to access my external drive so i can save the movies and access my android so i can use the manager app? also i sometimes use the windows side to record my videoblog. i know i can drag and drop what i want to put on the linux side onto the harddrive from windows, but how do i safely get them from the external drive to the linux side to use my video editor for example? i can deal with right-click and then eject the disc so its not owned by either system but i need a straightforward procedure for this.
