USB Thumbdrive for Linux & Windows

We currently use USB Thumbdrive on our Linux systems at work. However I notice because they have no file mounting system that they can't be read on a Windows system. Is there a simple method to be able to format the thumbdrive in Windows, then be able to use mcopy to move files from the Linux system to the thumbdrive which can be read on a Windows system?

Why not format the thumbdrive with vfat (arent all thumbdrives formatted with vfat (FAT32))??? I can use my USB thumbdrive in Linux and Windows the same. What is your thumbdrive filesystem? Check it with fdisk -l (while the thumbdrive is plugged in).
