Hi All,

Im dual booting Lubuntu and XP Pro sp3.

 

I have a very few files on external drives that were downloaded with Lubuntu that Windows wont open.

Mostly Lectures and a few mp3s.

 

They open and play,read fine in Lubuntu but windows shows them as 0 bytes with the

"refers to a location that is unavailable" error message.

 

Ive tried taking ownership of the files on Windows and so on but that doesn't work.

 

Not a huge issue but would be usefull to open the files with windows,does anyone have any ideas?

 

Thanks
