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.
