Customer Question
Is Windows XP capable...

Is Windows XP capable of accomodating a flash drive?

Technician's Assistant: What kind of computer do you have?

It is A Dell.

Technician's Assistant: Have you installed any updates recently?

No because Microsoft told me a long while ago that my computer was too old to do updates. I can't even update my browser anymore.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Computer Expert to know before I connect you?

The only thing is AT&T installed a digital modem last Friday as they are going all digital and I will be having a newer used computer installed this Saturday. I don't know if it's Windows 7 or 8 or whatever. Thanks

Hi. My name is***** you for your question and the opportunity to assist.

Windows XP should be able to read the contents of a flash drive. XP is an old version of Windows

and Microsoft is no longer supporting it with updates so if you're getting a newer computer it

too should be able to read a flash drive.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
