Reading/writing ext3 partiton from XP
I've used ext2ifs drivers to mount my ext3 partition in winxp, but I don't have write acces, it's mounted in a read-only mode, and i didn't check the rad-only box during the installation of the drivers.
I've used help from the official site
and this tutorial
It's a straithfoward proces so I dont understand what I did wrong.
I'm using fresh xp install with (more or less) all the updates and ubuntu 10.04
Also the partition is mounted at /home, so I dont know if that makes any diferance.
So could some one tell me where could be the problem?
Thnx guys!

I've used the ext2fsd driver with no problems.

i have had bad luck with all of the programs for winXP to read ect3 ( i am now on ext4 so...)

if i need something on the windows disk i just save it there from Arch or CentOS
