Files not seen on 2nd HD

I have a dual boot system with Vista Business and XP Pro. From XP I have saved an Acronis backup in a partition on the Vista drive. However it shows the partition as empty when I boot up in Vista.

In XP it shows the files.

Any ideas what I might be doing wrong. The partition is FAT32

Have you gone to Disc Management and marked the partition active ?

Right click Computer and select manage,agree to uac.
Disc management
Right click the partition in question and mark as active.

Sorry about this Skidzy - Forgot when booting up in Vista the drive letters change and files are there it is the partition on XP drive empty which it is.

In keeping with my name.
