I formatted an HDD as FAT32 in Ubuntu. Ubuntu and Mac OSX both see the drive perfectly fine and know that it is indeed FAT32. But in Windows 7, Disk Management sees it as unallocated, so I cannot even assign it a letter. Is there some discrepancy between the way Ubuntu formats FAT32 and the way Windows does it? I need it to move some files I backed up, if worst comes to worst I'll just have to remove the files to my Mac OSX partition, then reformat it in Windows, but if there is an easier/quicker solution it would be greatly appreciated.
