Comment (by MichaelPeppers):

 Well, fsck *does* say there are some consistency errors in the disk,
 likely caused by the driver used by Win XP (but those should be something
 minor since it works perfectly fine, I guess the bootup scan doesn't take
 care of those)
 Fact is, even with errors inside the disk, Haiku should be able to mount
 it as read/write anyway imo, maybe bringing up a warning or something
 beforehand, as the disk works afterall.
 And yes, I know the Haiku driver is not perfect, but there are some use
 cases where I'd need to access it from my Haiku install (say, my Linux
 install gets busted *again* and I need to edit some file in there quick,
 so no XP). There's already a prompt warning that it may be unsafe but if
 I'm willing to take the risk I'm fine with the occasional error... or even
 data loss. (to a certain extent ofc)
