Specs: Windows XP

I'm looking to get an external hard drive. It needs to be compatible with computers running Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. I've heard that some operating systems
can't handle drives that are 2 TB or higher. What are the limits for Windows XP, and are there 2 or 4 TB drives that can get around that?

What does the OEM say about that drive? Do they claim it will work with 32 bit xp and some service pack?

it should.. I have 4 . 2 on a win2003 server and 2 on a WinXP machine.. More recent Bios' will handle that with no prob.. it uses a USBSTOR driver... makes it generally universal
