    go into disk manager and assign them drive letters. By default Windows 7 does not assign driver letters to other partitions with other operating systems on them.

    right click computer, select manage, click on disk manager. Once that appears, right click the drive in question and select change drive letter.

    Windows does not support the Mac and Linux formats. Not natively. Maybe with a 3rd party piece of software.
