It it just me or we can't format Hyperdrive in WinXP? I have the
latest firmware, v2.1. Can we have a firmware update that enable
us to format in WinXP so we don't have to use a format CF card?

I found this to be true as well but like others feel it's not a big deal.

A while back I put together a usb external drive and ran into the same issue sort of. All the hard drives I used in the external box couldn't be windows xp formatted via the usb connection. I returned the drive case as faulty but now wonder if there is more to it. I know you can buy external usb drives pre installed in a case that will format.

I don't know if it's a firmware or hardware issue so can't answer your 2nd question.
