How can I access my linux partition from windozeXP so that I can burn some iso's?


How can I access my linux partition from windozeXP so that I can burn some iso's?
K3b is giving me problems and I must reinstall windoze due to a recent hack. I also want to uprgade from Mandrake 10.0 community to official so I downloaded the iso's last night and tried to burn in k3b with no success. I want to at least burn the iso's just incase something bad happens during my windoze reinstall. So my question is how can I access these iso's located in Linux from winXP so I can burn them in Nero?

Unfortunately, the answer is you can't. Windows cannot read Linux partitions.

There is a program that allows you to access EXT2 from Windows. It should work with EXT3, too. Google for it.

I don't know what other filesystems are supported.

there are loads of different frontends, comes to mind xcdroast, gcombust, gnome toaster, eclipse, Arson, ecc.

Note also that mandrake hasn't more programs avaible than other linux distros ( except the installation and the configuration program ), so burning apps for linux are usable on mandrake but they are not specific to mandrake.

The win program is called explore2fs, but there is also a filesystem driver that allows to browse files on a ext2 - 3 partition with your favourite filemanager ( e.g 7zip File Manager imo is good )

Or better yet, my errors are from cdrecord. Is there a replacement for this?

Afair no, but with the program i suggested you you can use nero for this time .

Then try to read the cd burning howto to discover how to use cdrecord.

cdrecord is your friend.

do this first:

cdrecord -scanbus

you will get a response that will be 3 #s seperated by ,

for me its 0,0,0

then once you have that its extreemly simple to bunr with cdrecord read the man for more details, but i just do this line for my burner:

Code:
cdrecord speed=2 dev=0,0,0 filename.iso
and hit the enter key. its that simple. sitback and wait.

oh im glad i saw this post cause i had a similar question not to long ago and a linux geek really helped me out. we actually made 3 partitions on the drive, one for winxp, one for linux and a middle one to put anything that i want to move back and forth or to be accessed by both OS. ie, i have 20 gigs of music and video and i dont want to have to be in one os to listen to them.

This is a good idea. How do I go about doing something like this? I have an 80 gig hardrive and want to do this too.

bust out you're favorite partitioning program
ie: Partition Commander, a personal favorite, Partition Magic, what ever suits your fancy
and create a partition that is however big you want it, FAT32
this way, no danger done, both Os'es can read/write to/from it
