On Vista you would run into a problem more then with 7. For avoiding any problems plus the more secure file system I simply reformat any Fat or exFat volume to NTFS for ready recognition. That allows for taking it with you to plug in on an older XP machine as well as on Vista or 7 without need for the preloaded software part.

While 7 now has Fat support returned due to the increased use of external drives and devices with factory Fat volumes you are always better off for another reason now with 7 being able to use the BitLocker encryption as well as the native NTFS.
