    Hi all. Running into an issue with using a USB Flash on my Dell XP Desktop. It's a computer I don't use much. I want to move files off of it to a Flash drive. I have 2 new drives that work fine on my laptops. They show as exFat. However, when I plug them in to my XP computer and try to move files, I get a message that the disk is not formatted and asks if I want to do that. Properties show it as RAW, not exfat. But, only on the XP computer. So I assume the issue is with that device. Any ideas on how to get it to recognize the drives? Thanks.
