So your saying when you format the drive fat32 in windows it reads ok on 
the centos but then after having in the centos the win7 barfs and you 
have to reformat?

And your centos file manglers don't see ntfs well?

Did you try command line?

Screw the gui stuff.
I had a bad experience last year when I tried copying a good size tree 
from a fedora to an external hard drive. It stopped after about 1/8 and 
I though it did it all. Never looked for myself and then dumped the 
fedora install and when I went to use my backed up stuff found out I 
lost a major portion. Some really important. I'll never do that again!
Try the command line and at least do a du when done.
