I have formatted an extrnal hard drive and now whne i try to access it via My Computer an error message appears (recycled\boot.com is not a valid Win 32 application. If i go through Explore i can access the files? I reformatted NTFS (the only option offered bu Windows XP). I had a similar thing happen with a USB data stick? Any help appreciated.

Thanks
