I have Transcend 500GB external hard disk. I recently switched from Windows7 to Ubuntu. Before everything was working fine, but now as I have my project files on external hard disk, I used MountManager to mount my hdd on ubuntu. But now my hdd is only detected on ubuntu on my laptop(not sure if will be detected on other laptop/computer with ubuntu).
When I try to use it with Windows, nothing happens at all, not detected, not even in Disk Management of Windows, not a single sign of my hdd. But when i tried Windows7 setup disk, I found my hdd in advanced tools.
I have very valuable and confidential data in my hdd so don't wana format it, Any good idea to make my hdd fine on any device????
Output of "sudo fdisk -l"

/dev/sdb1 is my external hdd
BTW, Window Setup can detect my hdd not in normal view(default display of hdd available), it only detects only when I use Advanced Options...
