Image file can't be opened by windows store app if the file is in the Ext4's external hard disk. RRS feed

  • Question

  • My question is described below:

    I have two disks, external hard disk and removable disk. They are formatted with EXT4.

    I put the same image in the disks, and use Ext2Fsd to mount the disks.

    I open the file in win8, and it will default open by the windows store app : photos.

    It will be success to open if the file is in the Ext4's removable disk.

    It will be failed to open if the file is in the Ext4's external hard disk.

    I don't know why it will be failed to open if the file is in the Ext4's external hard disk.

    Does anyone have similar experiences?

  • Hi hatasum,

    Thanks for posting!

    Base on my experience, if installed Ext2Fsd, we can read the ext4 file system on windows system. But Which version of Ext2Fsd did you use? From my experience, Ext2Fsd is not spported fine  about windows 8 version. Please refer to this software official website (http://www.ext2fsd.com/ ) . I suggest you could post this issue to the Ext2Fsd discussion forum ( such as http://sourceforge.net/p/ext2fsd/discussion/143329/thread/7f262ad0/ )for better help.

    Thanks for your understanding.

  • Hello everyone,
    I have a dual boot laptop with Windows 8.1 and Linux.
    I installed ext2fsd to share an ext3 partition on hard disk.
    Previously I installed the version 0.52 (that supports windows 8) with the option "force writing".
    But when I cut and pasted a file on the partition, using windows, the computer crashed.
    I then installed the version 0.53pre that I found online and I solved this problem.
    However, when I open a jpg on the ext3 partition with the app photos I get an error reading.
    Regards, Vito.
