  Error Unable to mount wrong fs type

Status in nautilus package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Dont partition makes not possible to open in Windows?

  1TB external USB HDD. In DISK UTILITY Formated using: Dont partition
  and & FORMAT VOLUME to FAT (not possible to NTFS)

  In windows 7 i plugged it in and it doesnt show up. In windows 7 in control panel i open Administration- Computer Management
  In there Disk management. I see there is my external USB HDD but it has option only to Format Volume. I do that using not format to NTFS but dont partition. In windows it doesnt work until i dont format it also so My Computer pops up asking to format. I dont wanted that.
  So it created Volume and without partitioning. I put it now in Ubuntu and got this pop up- see screenshot.
