Shared patitions between linux and windows.


Whenever I try to access a fat32 partion, to share files. I get this error:
Code:
Could not mount device
The reported error was:
mount: wrong fs type. bad option. bad superblock
on /dev/hdb14
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
So I opened a Konsole and typed: dmesg | tail. Here is the output:
Code:
VFS: Can't find a valid FAT filesystem on dev 03:05.
FAT: bogus logical sector size 25185
VFS: Can't find a valid FAT filesystem on dev 03:05.
FAT: bogus logical sector size 0
VFS: Can't find a valid FAT filesystem on dev 03:4e.
UMSDOS: msdos_read_superblock failed, mount aborted.
FAT: bogus logical sector size 0
VFS: Can't find a valid FAT filesystem on dev 03:4e.
FAT: bogus logical sector size 0
VFS: Can't find a valid FAT filesystem on dev 03:4e.
Now I have no idea what this means but it doesn't look good! What do I need to do to be able to put files on a fat32 partition?

are you sure you're trying to mount the correct partition and not an extended partition? you should post the command you're using and the output of fdisk -l.

Also, I was trying to save a file through kwrite to /dev/hdb14. Which is one of my fat32 partitions.
