Personal Storage 5000 WinXP Drivers

This download contains the WinXP Drivers for the Personal Storage 5000 external hard drive.

Release Notes

In order to assure users that they are using the highest-quality drivers, Microsoft will digitally sign drivers that pass the Windows Hardware Quality Lab (WHQL) tests. Drivers submitted to WHQL that pass testing with the final released Windows XP products will be given a Microsoft digital signature. This digital signature will be associated with individual driver packages and will be recognized natively by Windows XP systems.
