Hi.

Tommorrow I will be getting a u3 pen drive off play.com, now after reading it it says that it is only for windows 2000 and xp. Now is that the only operatings systems it will work on, I mean will it at all work with windows vista.

I will be either getting this 4gb model or the same which is 1gb

If anyone can tell me that will be great

Thanks

If you read the specifications is says:

* U3 functionality only supported on Windows 2000 & XP OS.

Go into Google and look at the U3 site.

Have a look at this page. It mentions Vista and Readyboost although Vista is not given in the OS's. Personally, I think it will be compatible.

Are you on Vista?

Dont buy it if not sure,they have stated operating system for good reason i would think.

"U3 functionality only supported on Windows 2000 & XP OS." What this means is the u3 programs on the disk will [possibly] not work on Vista. But you should be able to use it as a simple drive. Do check the u3 site.

No XP

...in the support section it says it will work with Vista if you use u3 Launchpad version 4.1.

I think the U3 Drive is an excellent idea internetwhizzkid, I would definately get one. I will be ordering one tomorrow :)
