I have an external firewire drive formatted in FAT32 that I have all of my iTunes music on and XP will just hang when starting up or shutting down with it connected. It will however startup and shut down fine if I don't turn the drive on until XP has finished starting up or shutting down. I have read user reviews on this drive and no one seems to be having this problem under XP so I was convinced that it' was an issue with Bootcamp, but cannot find anyone having a similar problem. Ideas? P.S. It runs without a hitch when hooked up via USB.
