Stupid user question of the day. Purchased a Verbatim 2TB USB 3.0 HDD, came formatted as FAT32. When attaching to 6 month old 64 bit computer, it crashes computer with above BSOD - when in Win 7 Pro, when booting from Norton Ghost disk, anytime. Can successfully attach to 32 bit Win XP Pro system. Have another ext HDD formatted NTFS which connects to both systems with no problems. Verbatim tech support response was that drive is fine since it connects to one computer successfully. Should formatting external drive as NTFS fix the problem and allow it to connect to 64 bit system? Don't want to do if this won't fix problem, as I will return if can't use on some computers. Or is more likely a driver issue? Thanks.
