Viewing ext3fs on Windows

I dual boot winxp and fedora. Though i can view ntfs partitions using fedora, windows doesnt recognize ext3fs partitions.

I have tried few softwares but they support ext2fs only.

Are there any known software/s to solve this.

Thanks in advance

As suggested I installed disk-internals Linux reader. It is showing the linux partitions.. but when i open them nothing seems to happen. But the Swap partition opens showing a file of 0kb. Any ideas?

I've been using Ext2 IFS For Windows for a couple of months, reading and writing to Ext2 and Ext3 file systems with no problem.
