ntfs volumes aren't recognized by windows
 
I've made 2 ntfs volumes by mkntfs. First one is a primary partition on usb hard drive and second is a logical partition on system hard drive. I used default cluster and sector sizes in mkntfs.

Under Linux these partitions are mountable by ntfs-3g, readable and writable. But fdisk doesn't recognize their filesystem type. It recognizes that as "Linux". WinXP x64 also can't recognize filesystem type of these partitions.

Why windows can't work with these partitions?

Probably because you only did the filesystem, not the partition. In fdisk change the type to x07. Very few things check the partition type, but that looks like it might.

Partition type has been changed and problem is solved. Thanks.
