I now have an external USB HD myself and after formatting it on Windows XP and using it on a Linux machine the XP machine wouldn't access the drive again.   The Windows 7 Starter Edition Netbook found it no problem.  The XP Machine would find it with defrag for example but not allow any use of the drive. 

Here is how I cured it (on XP):

Control Panel
Administrative tools
Computer Management
Disk Management
Right Click on drive name choose Change Drive Letter and Paths.
Assign it an unused drive letter.

That did it for me.

I believe truth and principle do matter. If you have to sacrifice them to get the results you want, then the results aren't worth it.
