My experience is that XP's explorer partially works. Sometimes it sees devices and sometimes it doesn't. When it sees a device there is a large probability that it won't be able to browse the files on the device, but sometimes it can. I was unable to determine exactly what causes the differences and eventually gave it up as a lost cause.
