How to view Linux harddrive in WinME?

Hello, I have Windows ME installed on one harddrive and then Mandrake Linux installed on another hard drive, and ever since I installed linux on the one hard drive, it hasn't shown up in Windows ME, how can I make it show up again so I can move some files over?

I would do this from Linux but my monitor shuts off after being in Linux for like 30 seconds so that kinda makes it impossible...

You might try exploree2fs, but it crashed with me.

Windows only sees Windows filesystems. You need a fat32 filesystem to do that because it is dangerous to write to NTFS in Linux.

Yeah I've been trying to use this, it appears to work randomly though and is about the most frustrating thing I've ever delt with :\.

I opened it the other day and it detected my Linux partitions and when I clicked the plus sign it either gave me an error or showed nothing at all. Then a few minutes ago it worked and I was able to transfer some files then it stopped and gave me an error then it wouldn't let me transfer anything anymore and now its back to showing nothing period, I don't understand why at all. I've restarted and rescanned partitions and its still not showing anything....
