XP to Vista

If i have saved photos and documents on my external Hard Drive using a XP OS and then purchase a new base unit with Vista OS installed, will this cause complications when opening folders off the external hard drive again in Vista?

Hope that makes sense.

As long as you have software on your new PC capable of opening photographs in the format that you saved them in, and documents in the same format that you saved them in, you won't have any problems.

I had loads of pictures and documents that I had done when I had XP and I have had no problems whatsoever since been on Vista.
