See the discussion about this on GParted forum at http://gparted-forum.surf4.info/viewtopic.php?id=16878. The partiton was /dev/sdb14 with GParted live. The final error message, from 'libparted' is:

"Could not detect file system."

> Also, how was the fs created?

Created orginally from Windows, not Linux.

> it shows up as fat32 in my tests.
