Thank you for your replies.obcd wrote:Windows has native support for fat, fat32 and ntfs partitions. So, if you want the partitions to show up in windows, you will need to create a third partition of that type and mount is as home.
You can also smb share the home folder. In that case, if you turn the Pi on, the folder will become visible for windows pc's. It's unclear what you want and were you want it for.
it seems your "thought" was right - rather than guessing, I tried it - and faileditimpi wrote:I think it is a requirement of the Pi booting code that the first partition be the boot one.
The first LOGICAL partition needs to be fat32.jaromanda wrote:it seems your "thought" was right - rather than guessing, I tried it - and faileditimpi wrote:I think it is a requirement of the Pi booting code that the first partition be the boot one.
some docos say the "boot" partition on the SD card needs to be FAT32 etc etc

too bad the "boot" flag in the partition table is irrelevant to the RPi - otherwise it would be as simple as the suggestion I made
Windows will only see the a FAT16/32 partition if it is the first partition afaiaa, also the Raspberry Pi will seek a FAT16/32 first partition afaiaa.musyne wrote:Same problem here.
I have 3 partitions:
1- boot (small)
2- linux (medium)
3- fat32 (what's left)
It works fine on Mac and Linux but Windows doesn't see the fat32 partition.
If anyone have a solution I'm all ears
In the meantime I'll make a big boot partition.

Windows does not recognise EXT File System, you need 3rd Party Softwarekafanti wrote:Hello everyone,
Even though this topic has already abandoned, I would like to ask if someone able to reach file system on SD card from both windows OS and Linux. So I would like to ask that am I able to reach file system on SD card from Windows OS to put some videos and music into it? So I can play those on my raspberry pi which rasbian running on it.
I have already tried to make 3rd partition as FAT32 but because of Windows OS I am not able to reach it...
If someone can help, I will be appreciated.
Or a bootable USB stick, or bootable CD-ROM with a live Linux CD like Knoppix.fruitoftheloom wrote: Windows does not recognise EXT File System, you need 3rd Party Software
