Would a FAT32 XP be able to detect NTFS harddrives? A friend of mine is struggling with his FAT32 HD being able to detect the NTFS portable drive. Using WinXP Media Center. I remember long ago when I swtiched from WinME to WinXP, I partitioned two drives; Fat32 for ME & NTFS for XP. Whenever I booted into ME, I could not see the NTFS drive but I can see both in XP. I'm just unsure whether that was just a feature ME was lacking or it was the drive format. EDIT: Nevermind, figured it out. The drive just wasn't assigned a drive letter, lol.
