And I can see the information inside from a Ubuntu live cd.
There is a way fix this, or i have to back up everythig to my new disk and make a new volume?

Sorry about my english :P
Hello Pedrornac, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Could you post a screenshot of your Disk Management window showing what it has for these drives?

Pedrornac,

By default, whatever OS you have started up in, it will show as the C: drive while in it.

You could use OPTION THREE in this tutorial with a elevated command prompt to add a drive letter to Disk 0 to it listed in the Computer window again.

Pedrornac,

What do you have on Disk 0?

It's not showing that it had been formatted previously as NTFS, and that is why it's not showing up in the command prompt.

What do you mean by "disk 0" ?

The volume 0 in the elevated command prompt?

Sorry,

I meant Disco 0 in your screenshots of Disk Management in your other post above. It's the one not listed as a volume in the command prompt screenshot.

It's a disk with one NTFS partition. I use it for storage only. In my old win 7 installation and I can access it fine then. And still can access from a Ubuntu live cd.

That may be fine for Ubuntu, but for Windows 7 to be able to use Disco 0, it needs to be formated as either NTFS or FAT32 first. NTFS is preferred. If you format it, be sure to backup anything you do not want to lose to another location first with your Ubuntu live CD.

The disk is formated as NTFS, and I done that with a windows application.
