How to get Vista to recognize and read a Ubuntu partition?

  1. A friend of mine has installed Ubuntu on his PC alongside Vista. He would like to know how he can get Vista to read and recognize the Ubuntu partition, so he can share and transfer data between the two. Any ideas please.

  3. You can install a filesystem driver, like this one:

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/ext2fsd

    It has read/write abilities, but I wouldn't recommend writing to the partition. It screws up permissions really badly.

    This works with my XP machine, but I can't find any info regarding Vista. At least this may be a starting point for you...

    I honestly don't think this is possible. Windows uses a certain format to read (Fat32) I don't know if i can read other formats?

    Vista can't access Ubuntu Partitions
    because it doesn't recognize Ect3 Format that Ubuntu uses
    you might be able to download a program that can .
