I've got a couple late model Compaq and HP desktops running XP and an older Compaq Laptop running ME. I have several external/portable hard drives formated NTFS. Due to it's age and cost of buying XP I can't run XP on the Laptop. I've used an external HD with the Laptop in the past but I think it was formatted FAT 32. Now the (ME) Laptop won't run the ext HD (NTFS). Question, I know XP will work with ME but will ME not work with NTFS? If not, I guess I could format one of the ext HD as FAT 32.
