I reformatted the partition using mkfs.msdos -F32 /dev/sdb4. The
Properties display on both Windows and Linux identify it as F32 and VFAT.
The fstab entry is now
/dev/sdb4 /home/madolf/Common vfat
noauto,uid=1000,gid=1000,auto,rw,owner 0 0
It shows up in /home/madolf as a disk volume icon on linux and \F on
Windows. All ownership is set to me not root.
PROBLEM: I can write and read on Windows. I can write and read on
Linux. BUT I cannot see on either system what was written on the
other! What's going on?
