All versions of Windows since Windows95 SP2 have FAT32 support.

Hard to say why your USB drive isn't being recognised. Perhaps it is damaged. Do other USB drives work? Does the USB drive work on another computer?

Sorry.. Not Win95 SP2... I meant Win95 SE. Been a while.

Actually USB Support has been around since Windows 95 OEM Service Release 2.1 [4.00.950B]

Your problem has nothing to do with File Systems it is a corrupted USB Flash Drive.

Thank you all. Didn't explain fully....ofc. files & oper. system is a FAT32, uses MSWord 2003. Thought if I installed MS Word 2003 on my home computer which runs XP PRO, NTFS I could do work at home. Put work files on usb, cd yet unable to access either, get message "network path can not be found"? Even tried emailing them but couldn't transfer them to MS Word 2003. Am I trying to do the undoable!! :)
thanks to all for your time

Sounds to me like your assuming the drive letter assigned to the flash drive will be the same at work as at home, it is often not the case. Open up my computer or explorer and check to see what drive letter has been assigned.
