Hey guys, I'm new to XP and ran into a problem. We have all NT 4.0 workstations at my work. I have XP Home edition at home. When myself or a customer brings in a Zip or CD-R /RW disk that has been formatted and writtn by Xp, NT will not recognize or read it. If I format a Zip ir CD with NT, XP will read and use it though? I cannot find anything on this anywhere. Usually I would say oh well, but we have customers bringing files in and that cannot read. Any and all help would be appreciated Later IAJack

The likely culprit that springs to mind: FAT32. XP sees and uses FAT32, FAT16, and NTFS. NT sees and uses FAT16 and NTFS, though a slightly older version (which could possibly present a problem, but I'd doubt it). Solutions? Don't format your disks on an XP box. Upgrade your NT boxes to XP. the_reject
