Windows XP does not see external disk's partitions from Windows 7
I formatted a 2 TB external hard drive using Windows 7 into four partitions, and started backing up stuff on it from various other computers, but now my Windows XP (Pro, SP3) machine doesn't see the partitions. It sees only 2 TB of unpartitioned space. I partitioned and formatted the drive using Windows 7 HP 64-bit, as four drives of roughly 500 GB, NTFS.
Does anyone know how what I should do to either the drive or to Windows XP? I had no problems backup up data to it from a second machine that also has Windows 7 on it.
The hard drive used to be in a WD MyBook Live, but I found that networked backup is 1/100th the speed of backup via USB 2, so I broke open the MyBook Live case, took the hard drive out of it and simply put it in a spare USB external casing.
