Vista doesn't retain XP file time stamps?

#1
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?
