Mounting Partitioned USB Flash Drive To Newer Windows OS?

  1. Hi all...

    I can't seem to be able to mount a USB Flash Drive with the below formatting to any Windows OS newer than 98SE (four partitions, with the two FAT partitions being readable by Windows etc)?

    /dev/sdX1 (FAT16) : bootloader (and associated files) and kernel, not
    mounted in running system
    /dev/sdX2 (cramfs) : root filesystem (i.e. OS and all software), mounted
    as read-only at root (i.e. at "/")
    /dev/sdX3 (FAT32) : content, config, eqparams, etc., mounted as
    read-only at /mnt/content
    /dev/sdX4 (ext3) : space to write records (i.e. persistentDB.txt,
    logging files), mounted as writable at /mnt/records

    ...the funny thing is that Win98SE will mount the two FAT pratitions, but Win2K and WinXP won't?

    Could it be the order, or...???

    TIA for any help...

    What does the Disk Manager say about those partitions? Can you assign them letters manually?
