I suggest you try "ntfsfix /dev/sd??"  on your external drive then try
mounting it or having it automount.  I note incidentally that most
likely either Windows or Ubuntu isn't cleanly unmounting said drive and
finding out which might solve some of these issues for you.  Also
running chkdisk /f on the partition from XP or Vista will clean up a
partition marked as umounted uncleanly, but that's often a pain.
I've taken to unmounting external drives and disconnecting them before I
shut down an OS, I don't normally see this problem now.
