I'm not saying you should do this, but if it were my drive. I would
transfer the data using the XP machine and then format the drive and
return the data. If you want to just plug and play to different
machines, format the drive as FAT32 (default) . Format it as NTFS if
you want an added layer of authentication and password security.
