    You just need to mount the required drives.
    Code:
    fdisk -l
    
    will give you the names of the partition on your system.
    Code:
    mkdir /mnt/C
    mount -t vfat -rw /dev/hda1 /mnt/C
    
    you can replace /dev/hda1 with whatever your drive's name is. And you can give whatever name you like instead of C I have given here.
