    My prob is i had files on my friends comp (which runs win xp) i installed an ext h/d on his comp and copied all my files onto it. Now i need to access my files on the ext h/d from a computer that is running windows me. Is there anyway possible to accomplish this without formatting the ext drive. Please HEELLLPP thanks in advance

    Hi Mate,

    Sorry I'm no wizard on file structures but one way around it I suppose would be to use a partition manager (partion magic) to create a small fat32 partition, copy the files you need into the partition and then, in an ideal world, you will be able to see the files from ME. I haven't had a real good play with Partition magic lately but it may allow you to do complete conversions safely anyhow.
