Windows files not visible on USB drive - FC4

Ahh my first thread. Had to happen sometime.

I've been using a USB drive to move files from my M$ box at work to my home FC4 box. Or rather I haven't.

Under FC3 it worked perfectly, I could move things about easily - after the FC4 upgrade all files put on by windows aren't visible.

Oddly, all files put on by FC4 aren't visible to windows either.

So; each OS can read/write to the drive but can't see the others files.

Any idea why?

Also, the USB doesn't mount on the (KDE) desktop as requested but appears under /media - even when it's removed.

An odd one I think.

if you view them in a terminal window and do a ls does it show up anything?
