Will a drive formatted in windows 7 work with vista?

Can anyone help please?

I see the external Hard Drive in disk management and devices lists, but it doesn't have a drive letter
nor will it let me format with Vista.

It works fine with Windows 7 which is on my laptop but won't work on my desktop which is Vista??

Any ideas please?

  1. It should work. What type of drive is it? How was it formatted? Is your Vista machine at work and locked down so that USB devices are not allowed?
  2. A formatted drive will work fine in XP, Vista, and Win 7.

    I have all three types of computers and I use the same external drive to do my backups on all three.
