Ok, thanks I'll try that.I was copying the partitions from a live USB linux after. The partitions were mounted under /media/origin and /media/destination. [by username]

However GParted detects them. The filesystems were ext4 and ntfs(old windows partition). They used to be mounted at /media/part1 for the ext4 and /media/ntfs. Last night after reading through the man pages for mount and fs, I put together this solution:
create the missing directories in the /media dir and then type: sudo mount /dev/sda1 ext4..etc. Is this the way to fix the problem?
I've just installed Ubuntu 14 in dual boot with Win8. The two OSs share an SSD, and there are two HDDs as well for data. The one HDD is for Ubuntu and is ext4. The other HDD for Windows is NTFS, and the two partitions there show up automatically in Ubuntu and I can share data there.
