What partition type should be used for cross-platform FAT partitions?
What partition type should I use for FAT partitions such that Linux and Windows systems both recognize the drive?
I am partitioning the drive with
fdisk and making the filesystem with
mkfs.fat /dev/sdx. Linux seems to recognize anything I throw at it. Microsoft is the problem.
Is there a modern replacement for the
W95 FAT32 (LBA) partition type? A new drive I recently bought comes with this type and it is recognized by both Linux and Windows systems.
