I've had no success with mounting a vfat file system created by a
Windows XP guest on a lvm volume. Windows XP guest is running under xen 3.0.5 rc3.
# mount -t vfat /dev/vg1/win1 /mnt/
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/vg1/win1,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
FAT: invalid media value (0xb9)
VFS: Can't find a valid FAT filesystem on dev dm-0.
# lvm version
LVM version: 2.02.10 (2006-09-19)
Library version: 1.02.10 (2006-09-19)
Driver version: 4.7.0
# uname -a

I found solutions for similar problem (symptoms) reported with usb pens but no one worked.
Help would be greatly appreciated.
