[ubuntu] Using an Ubuntu USB drive with Windows 7

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – A friend of mine was going to give me a USB drive that was imaged with Ubuntu. The drive has some video files on it. Could someone tell me if it will work if I plug it into my Windows 7 and/or XP computer or is there a special way that I have to mount it so as to have access to the files on it? Thank you (Hardware)
