accessing windows folders via ubuntu proved a real pain in the butt for me. There are several guides on the subject online that suggest completely different methods.
Here is one.
How To Access Your Windows Hard Drive From Ubuntu
Linux is a bit snobby about accessing windows for some reason.
As for VM, it's not something I use enough myself to be giving any advice on.

Ok, here is the procedure for installing the vmware tools for Ubuntu;

The first thing you need to do is make sure that you have the build tools installed to perform a build of the vmware modules;
Code:
sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-`uname -r` psmisc

Then, go into VMWare Player, Virtual Machine, Install vmware tools

Then, open a terminal window in Ubuntu and do the following

Make a mount point with;
Code:
sudo mkdir /media/cdrom
Mount the vmware tools iso
Code:
sudo mount /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom
Copy and extract VMWareTools

Code:
sudo cp /media/cdrom/VMwareTools*.tar.gz /home/username
cd /home/username
tar -xzvf VMwareTools*.tar.gz
Then install the vmware tools
Code:
cd /home/username/vmware-tools-distrib 
sudo ./vmware-install.pl

Once you have the VMWare tools installed, the shared folders is simple.

You go into Settings for the VM, Go into Options, and enable shared folders. You will have to pick something to share (For example, the C drive). Then give it a name.

Once you have done this, navigate to \mnt\hgfs on your Ubuntu box and you should see the shared folder name that you created above.

ubuntu-gust os !! Urgent !!

You boot into Ubuntu, open a terminal and simply cut and paste all of the commands that I have given you. I even provided explanations for exactly what I am doing. I don't really know how to provide any more information than this, these are the exact steps on how to do it.
