Have you tried it while being root? being that you used fat32 you
shoudn't(in theory) have any problems with fat32.When I had XP/MDK9.2 I
could read/write to windows with no problem, now with my Xp/MDK10.1
setup, I can read the ntfs and fat32 partitons but I have to be root in
order to write. Now that I think about It, this may be something to do
with permissions that I know nothing about.
