How to make my 500 mybook compatible with windows vista


Hello,

Normally by default, these external storage devices are pre-configured to work with Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. If you are having troubles making it work with Windows Vista, try to reformat the device with NTFS formatting and it should run smoothly.

Cheers!
