Microsoft today announced that it has reached a patent-licensing agreement with Sharp. Specifically, Sharp is licensing the Extended File Allocation Table (exFAT) patent held by Microsoft for use in some of its Android smartphones. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Microsoft licenses smartphone patents to most manufacturers of Android smartphones, with Motorola being the most notable exception.

I hope it's backwards compatable

I have a really, really, really old USB drive, maybe about 100 or 150 MB, and it uses FAT (file allocation table), not FAT16, or FAT32, but the original FAT system. It does not work on my Windows 7 PC, or on my PS3. Hopefully the new file system is backwards compatable with other file systems.
