Windows XP 32-Bit does not support GPT (GUID Partition Table) which the brand new WD Elements 2TB will be formatted as.

then you would know that the other external storage you have will be MBR (Master Boot Record) partitioned … or using 512 Byte Emulation (for drives over 2TB) for WinXP compatibility.
