Is there a way to install the SanDisk Extreme 500 SSD on a Dell laptop running Windows XP with USB 2.0 ports?
When I plug it in it recognizes that hardware was plugged in and that's it, it just hangs there.
I was hoping to back up my data so the Sandisk so I can transfer everything AND have a backup of all of my data.

the extreme 500 come formatted in the exFAT sile system. Microsoft used to provide a patch for XP to add exFAT support but that patch is no longer available. You could try connecting the drive to a Win 7 or higher computer and formatting in NTFS and see if that would work with XP. It may not work though and XP is not a supported OS for the drive so if it does not work there may not be a lot of options for you.
