No doubt about that ! FAT32 is more likely to get corrupt than ext3 !
"In order for a partitioned disk to be usable a filesystem must be built on it. In this case, we are referring to the filesystems also known as "partition types," "disk-based filesystems," and "file system types." In reality, these can be thought of as a file management system, because that is just what they do: They keep the files on your system in a consistent state by maintaining metadata on them."
