FAT Partition does not refresh

In SUSE 8.1, i cna obvioulsy access my FAT partion.  However, when i boot into windows and create a file, and then boot into linux, the file is not there.  if i boot back into windows,.. the file is there again.  It apears that only the files that where on my fat partion at the time of instal are accessible.  how cna i change this?

NO,
its not like that..
every time u boot ir remounts the partition .. so every file shud be visible .. whats the file that u have on hand .. and how r u making it ..

how are you mounting the fat partition?

/dev/hda1  /c  vfat   defaults,uid=507,gid=1111,umask=002 1 2

that will mount /dev/hda1 (usually windows C) giving ownership to user 507 (me) and group ownership to 1111 (my grooup) setting the umask to 002 (so that you can rwx as uid 507 and group 1111 but only r-x as other

try fdisk -l /dev/hda - and any other hard drives(hd[bcd])

ok, im not completely stupid when it comes to computers.  yes, in answer to am0ld's question, i am sure i am mounting the correct partition.
in answer to akshayxx's responce, it is like that, every file is not visible.  that is how it is,.. i cannot view them logged in as root, or as any other user,.. regardless if i am able to view hidden files or not.
majorwoo, i will try your solution.

if it is still not working, try testing in the opposite direction - mount the vfat partition, write to it, check if windogs sees it
