I have a Pen-drive of 8GB, I have 2 partitions on it, one of 15MB and another of the remaining (7GB+).

I know that Windows only recognizes the first partition, is there any way to mount the second partition on Windows.

Have you tried using the Disk Management utility, invokable by running diskmgmt.msc? – Rilgon Arcsinh Apr 30 '12 at 10:23
Yes, That Does not Help out. – Akshat Mittal May 1 '12 at 10:51

There seems to be a registry hack available for windows. Try the following post.

You just need to activate the primary partition on both partition.

You can follow this command line:

  list disk
  select <disk number>
   create partition primary size=2000  (mount of size you want on the usb)
  format quick fs=fat32 label="name it the way you want"
  assign letter=P
