I have a disk partition that is mapped to a separate volume which is listed as

/dev/sda3/ /media/DATA fuseblk ...

in gnome-system-monitor when mounted. However when I start Ubuntu it is not mounted and cd /media/DATA fails. I usually need to firtst access the drive through Nautilus. How do I make it availabale on startup?

The partition must be mounted before you can access it.
You need to add the volume /dev/sda3 to /etc/fstab.

for example:

 file system    mount point       type          options

 /dev/sda3      /media/DATA       vfat            ...
