Hi,

I have an external usb hard drive formatted with FAT32. When I connect to my Vista laptop I can see all the files on there of which there is nearly 50Gb. However, when I connect to an XP laptop it shows the drive as being empty.
Can anyone tell me why this could be happening?

As far as I'm aware both Vista and XP can read FAT32 volumes?

Thanks in advance.
