    Ext3, there's a driver, but it could conflict and cause some bsoding ...

    Ext4, not sure if the tool supports yet.

    P.S. For windows/linux cross-operability, I always use ntfs, cause all can read it. I even have virtual machines on external usb disks formatted in ntfs encapsulated in truecrypt containers read by linux virtualization software, no issues, works great.

    Regards,

    The ext2fsd driver works with the latest kernels in most distros where the exrt2 IFS did not and ext 3/4 are backward compatible (to a degree) with ext2 so it will work with them. http://www.ext2fsd.com/
