Hi all,

I created 2 fat16 partitions for my imation thumbdrv using fdisk on linux with the help of this brilliant guide (http://www.pendrivelinux.com/2007/01/25/usb-x-ubuntu-610/, steps 4-11, 2nd partition is fat16)

after i write the partition table, i got this warning:
WARNING: re-reading the partition table failed with error 16

But the partitions still works fine on linux.

On linux, i can see both partitions. But on winxp, i can only see the first partition.

Winxp cant detect the 2nd partition?

Thanks all :)

Probably better to have created them in DOS though.
