HELP - Want to buy a USB storage for vista?

  adewalton 20:52 15 Aug 2007

Hello friends,

I am trying to find a usb stogage device that will work with windows vista?
I am looking for a 4 or 8 GB one so I can back up my photos etc from my laptop, I really wanted a Sony one but I can't seem to find one that will work with vista. I tried a 4GB Sony Micro Vault buy the pc does not reconize it, I have tested the usb port with a wireless mouse and the port finds the plug and play mouse fine.
It even said on the packaging that the sony micro vault would work with vista but this seems not to be the case?

Can any of you guys / galls help with this?

Thanking you in advance,

Do you know Skidzy will it work with windows vista business???

Does anyone know?
I don't want to go ahead and buy the one skidzy recommends until I am sure it will work with Windows Vista Bussiness?

Thanks once again, I await your thoughts?
