Since I reinstalled ubuntu 12.04 ,the system does not recognize
vfat , fat32, or fat16. Using my flash drive (usb),is
not possible. It does not see vfat. How can I resolve this problem? Thank you...

I have a 320GB external HDD with 2 partitions, both primary:
1. vfat 100GB
2. ext3 remainder
Both were formatted when I created them with qtparted.
Windows 7 sees them, and says they are healthy, but does not recognize the vfat partition. Is it too big, perhaps?
Short of moving everything off the vfat partition and recreating it with W7, how do I fix it?
exec /system/bin/iqcopy /system/etc/iq.img.vfat /data/iq.img.vfat
chown system system /data/iq.img.vfat
chown system system /data/app_iq_archive
chmod 0640 /data/app_iq_archive
mount vfat loop@/data/iq.img.vfat /data/app_iq_a
How can I present a Linux native file system, e.g. YAFFS2, ext3, to Windows over USB such that it appears as VFAT or NTFS?
I currently share a VFAT loop back file using the g_file_storage kernel module. Ideally, there is some translation layer available that presents one file system as another type of file system.
I have dual HD setup (http://crunchbanglinux.org/forums/topic artitions/). Question: can a simple storage partition be ext4 (as opposed to vfat)? Is ext4 safer than vfat (viruses, instability etc)? The ext4 / windows nexus has an obvious downside, but that goes w/o saying :) What would you use & why?
