I wouldn't expect a problem ....

Well, this has been a rather unwelcome bit of info. I will soon have a new Win 7 64bit system running as my main machine. I've used the USB external My Books for several years as backups and all of my systems have been 32bit. Given what you've said so far, it looks like none of the external drives will likely work with my new system. How nice.


I would not expect a problem with any conventional USB storage device.  I switched over to Win7 shortly after it first came out.  At the time, I was using three different large external drives, including one MyBook, and I never gave compatibility a second thought with any of them ... No need.  Jim's drive is a 'mirror' drive using a RAID configuration.  It looked to me like WD had provided a new disk management system for his Drive compatible with Win7, but for some reason the support people he was talking to  wouldn't claim compatibility?
