I use Linux and have three partitions on a flash drive:

Model:  USB FLASH DRIVE (scsi)
Disk /dev/sdc: 8011MB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
Partition Table: msdos

Number  Start       End         Size        Type         File system  Flags
 4          32.3kB    8225kB   8193kB    primary    ntfs
 2          8225kB   4195MB   4187MB   primary    fat32            boot
 1          4195MB   8003MB  3808MB    primary    ext3

I hope this information is useful.

My problem is, if I put the device into a Windows machine, Windows only lists one partition in My Computer, seemingly chosen at random. I know that from Administrative Tools I can add drive letters to the other partitions (well, not the ext3 one). However, I want to access the partitions on an account which is a restricted user.

Any ideas?

If you are wanting to access the ext3 partition, you could try something like Ext2 IFS for windows.

I apologise for not stating my problem clearly enough. I don't mind about not accessing the ext3 partition, I want to be able to plug my drive in to a Windows XP based machine while logged on to a restricted account and access my fat32 and ntfs partitions from My Computer.
