Will this work with windows xp and linux

Asked by: C23E
This has not been tested on those operating systems so we could not fully guarantee compatibility, however it would use the standard Mass Storage drivers which have been in use since XP SP2 for Windows and similar drivers should be available for Linux through the community.
