Do you have a CD burner? If so, backup your mp3s by burning them to data 
CDs [not music CDs] which will hold about 700 MBs of mp3 files each. You 
can use Brasero to do the burning within Ubuntu, it's on the 
Applications, Sound & Video menu.

You can read, and play the mp3s right from where they are on the Windows 
drive, as Ubuntu reads the Windows file system [NTFS] no problem.

Rythmbox is a good mp3 player which will give you a sorted library 
interface to your collection, even while it's still on the NTFS 
partition. It's on the Applications, Sound & Video menu.

I hope this is the help you needed.
