you should really keep some old USB sticks for future use

many USB 3 sticks just dont work in Windows XP

there is no reason why, but they don't

it has nothing to do with stick capacity, which are these days something like 32GB at minimum while it was 4GB in 2008 when XP was most widely used OS

but size doesnt matter
500GB HDD connected through USB will work just fine

its just USB memory sticks doesnt work if they are modern, lets say manufactured after 2015

I did managed to get 32GB USB 3.0 stick to work, its manufacture date is 2013

so far I got three sticks after the year 2015 which will not be recognized in XP

      Why would anyone want their pendrives to be compatible with deadshitos? If any, I want modern hardware to be as incompatible as possible , so NEET baby duckies will get frustrated, go to work and earn money for a new computer.

          Eradicate Linux then. If you think that people using old Windows and old PCs is a problem, Linux is far worse in that regard.

            Unlike deadshitos, Linux actually serves a purpose in modern computing instead of just being there for legacy purposes. Freetards are indeed annoying but they are not nearly as annoying as XPedos and 7niles (and unlike them, they can actually run up to date web browser).

    the inability of Windows XP to recognize modern USB 3.0 sticks is due to its lack of USB 3.0 support, and not the capacity of the sticks. Using external hard drives via USB, which are often designed with broader compatibility, is a different scenario and these devices usually continue to work with older standards like USB 2.0

      Won't any USB 3.0 sticks fall back to USB 2.0 when you plug them on an USB 2.0 port? I haven't tested with Windows XP but almost all my USB 3.0 devices, and all USB 3.0 sticks, still work when I plug them on an USB 2.0 port.
      Unless OP is being a moron and plugging the devices on an USB 3.0 port that's not functional at all in XP

      what brand is ok?
      Sandisk?

      Personally I'd recommend Sandisk USB sticks over Kingston, yeah

    >there is no reason why, but they don't
    If they don't it is because there *IS* a reason why, moronicus maximus. Likely has to do with the communication protocol and not maintaining proper backwards compatibility, I speculate.
    Why? Undoubtedly to cut costs. It is a dick move towards XP enthusiasts.

    Grabbing an older USB drive off of fleaBay is a great idea. If the model isn't a giveaway of its age, but the drive comes in original packaging, then ask the seller to give you a clear photo of the backside of the packaging (if it isn't already there), the back will show the year 99% of the time.

      I mean, the communication protocol at the hardware level, in the USB drives' chips themselves.
      They constantly need to cut costs if product prices struggle to rise with the inflation rate. Folks' wages don't + no one gets inflation, which results in the need to cut costs a lot and constantly, and eventually stuff falls off with time, like proper XP compatibility.

    You should worry more about buying up compatible hardware that can actually run it, like HP Compaq's 6000 or 8000 series (old BIOS versions have trouble booting from usb, just update the bios).

    Completely unrelated to your post, but it's a good thread to say this: AVOID recent Kingston pendrives. The ones with 128GB are absolute dogshit, not only are they much slower than 10 year old 16GB drives, they die before you can even fill them up. Kingston is a fricking joke of a brand now.
