Hello, I was wondering about the new versions of the Western Digital my book hard drives. I'm using Windows Vista OS and have several of the older version WD my book drives which work fine with Vista. So my question is are these new drives compatible with Vista? Thank you

Starting with Windows XP SP3, it recognizes drives over 1TB, As long as you have Vista SP2, You're fine.

Thanks for the help. I have Vista SP2 but what about the format being exFAT not NTFS

Hi Monkeypeaches –
exFAT support was added to Vista in SP1, so if you have SP2 you’re all set, and shouldn’t have any trouble using exFAT formatted drives.
