I have several Lacie external drives and plan to buy two more now. They work fine on my XP computer.
However one of my PCs already runs windows 7 and I will soon reformat and install windows 7 on the XP machine.

I have seen from some fora that there may be compatibility issues with lacie / windows 7, and i see that windows 7 is NOT mentioned on the list of OS in some of the adverts .  Hard to believe that window 7 would NOT be catered for, at least  through a driver download, but am reluctant to buy without advice.

many thanks,

Alex

You could put one of your drives on the Windows 7 PC to give it a test drive
