Hi guys I am having some trouble with a new second hand hard drive (The whole tower). I plug my lexar USB into one of the slots and it won't allow me to access it. I think the cause is that my USB is formatted in FAT32. I don't think Windows me can read FAT32 only 16 and below. Can anyone give me a program that could allow me to access it without reformatting it?

Thanks.

HOLD ON. Guys my USB is NTFS. That's why! I'll reformat it now.

Also any other ideas on how to make this thing useful? I can't update to XP as I don't have enough money. Yes I know XP is cheap but I just can't afford it as I have next to no money atm.

The easiest thing to do is find someone with a Vista, WinXP or Win7 computer and copy the files of temporarily. Then format it FAT32 and copy/move them back.
