That's normal.. you have to install plugins if you want them -- they don't come pre-installed, even though you might think they do from looking at the "plugins" folder after installation (that folder is just populated with placeholders).Hi can you please explain how get them to work as I havent had much success, thanks-mouser (October 16, 2012, 11:23 AM)
Ok so how should I have done it ? Do I have to reformat the linux hard drive ?Hi , I recently put Freespire on my second hard drive now windows doesn't recognize it . It shows up under disk management as a unnamed drive and "healthy and active " any ideas on what is wrong ? Thanks-whippy (March 26, 2008, 03:36 AM)
Windows can't read ext*/reiserfs/whatever other file system your Linux installation is using. Windows will only recognize NTFS and FAT file systems, nothing else. There's not really anything you can do about it. I know there is a driver out there somewhere that lets Windows read Ext2/3 but it was so unreliable and caused so many BSOD's for me that I wouldn't bother looking it up. On the positive side though, *nix can both read and write NTFS using NTFS-3g (now used by default in most distros).
EDIT: I almost forgot, if you are using Total Commander on Windows, you can use this FS plugin to gain read access to Ext*/ReiserFS partitions. It's not 100% perfect, but it will let you read almost anything on said file systems.-Dirhael (March 26, 2008, 08:24 AM)
