    Explore2fs is what you need. It does say that write access should work, but use it at your own risk.

    i got paragon partion manager free with a magazine. it includes a program called ext2 anywhere which mounts linux partions under windows so they look like an normal drive under my computer.

    cool, i might have to have a look at that.

    Does it say anything about write access to ext2 partitions/ Also, does it read Ext3? Cos i have ext3 rather than ext2.
