Vista Compatible External Hard drive suggestion, please! RRS feed

  • Question


    Hi, I am buying an external hard drive for my son who has Vista Home on his computer.  I am having a hard time finding him an affordable (pref under $100) 120 GB external hard drive that is compatible with Vista.  I do not want to waste time getting something that does not work with his computer.


    By now I would suppose that Microsoft or its users have come to some conclusions on this -- so -- does anyone know any (basically) plug and play usb external hard drives that will work with Vista Home? 


    Even if we have to download drivers, if they are now available - I guess that is acceptable but I don't want a black box sitting on the desk that doesn't work, basically.


    Thanks in advance for any help anyone can give me!
