Well, your main problem here is that in case of an machine running 
Windows XP, you are likely using a hard drive formatted with NTFS and 
not FAT32, which means you would be at the mercy of a working NTFS 
file system driver as well, and that is at least in terms of write 
access a bit of a gamble IMPE...
