for some strange reason you also need to create the partition from Windows. Not necessarily format it there but create it.

Just formatted as UDF one of the (MBR) logical partitions on my hard drive and Windows 7 had no problem with it

Thanks Skolima, this is great. Bye bye FAT32. I only need to be careful to stick to UDF version 2.01 and to 512 block size and I have the perfect hard disk partition shared across Linux and Windows.

You definitely want to keep the same block size to avoid prematurely wearing the flash memory, see: lwn.net/Articles/428584
