Vista doesn't retain XP file time stamps?

I recently installed Vista Ultimate and I now dual boot XP Pro & Vista and I have a shared hard drive that was first created with XP and has all my files on it.

However, when I go to sort by date modified in Vista it doesn't list any date. This is kind of a bummer because now I can't sort the way I would like? Or am I totally missing something here?

On an entirely different note - Notice how embedded wmv media files don't play in Firefox?

I use Vista and I see the dates when I use details view , dont get why you would not see them.

Was it a hard drive with files originally created in WinXP? I am not talking about any files that were created inside of Vista.

Maybe I have date modified turned off on this hard drive, I am not real sure?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
