    I was trying to open a file I saved in my Ubuntu partition with Wordpad, and for my surprise, Vista couldn't find the partitioned driver.

    Why does it happen? How do I fix it?

    thanks

    Its because Windows does not recognise Linux partitions. You need to save documents to a USB flash disk or some other removable drive which is formatted as FAT32 so that both systems can read/write to it.
