    western digital ptb my book external hard drive purchased 4/11 is no longer recognized by windows xp
    (dimenson c521-service pack 3).

    contents [that matter most are around 60gb of audio files] appear to be intact. using the same usb cable contents were recognized by windows 7 and select files in different batches copied from external to 7 c drive.

    the only sign of an xp problem was 5 days of low virtual memory messages. at that point xp local disk free space was approximately 15%.
