    This is just because the stuff is written to the cache on the fat partition, but isn't written to the actual partition. The way to fix this would be to add the sync option in the fstab:

    Code:
    /dev/hda2  /windows/D vfat   rw,umask=0002,sync,nls=utf8 0 0
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

    I think that will make it but...

    thanks for such a quick reply..

    This is how it looks now:

    /dev/hda3 /mnt/win_e vfat umask=0,sync,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850 0 0

    after doing the change I rebooted and give it a try with a video file, but when I got to win still doesn't appear.

    what could be?
    this is my /etc/fstab:

    # This file is edited by fstab-sync - see 'man fstab-sync' for details
    /dev/hda7 / ext3 defaults 1 1
    /dev/hdb /mnt/cdrom auto umask=0,user,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,noauto,ro,exec,users 0 0
    /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom2 auto umask=0,user,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,noauto,ro,exec,users 0 0
    none /mnt/floppy supermount dev=/dev/fd0,fs=ext2:vfat,--,umask=0,iocharset=iso8859-1,sync,codepage=850 0 0
    /dev/hda1 /mnt/win_c ntfs umask=0,nls=iso8859-1,ro 0 0
    /dev/hda5 /mnt/win_d ntfs umask=0,nls=iso8859-1,ro 0 0
    /dev/hda3 /mnt/win_e vfat umask=0,sync,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850 0 0
    none /proc proc defaults 0 0
    /dev/hda6 swap swap defaults 0 0

    usually just having sync should work, from looking at "man mount", i'd also say, try the dirsync option as well.
