I have a lot of experience with this issue. I am in the middle of the same 
issue with Dell. The problem is, my laptop (HP) is also running XP and it 
recognizes the HHb via USB and I don't have any problems. I called and talked 
HHb on Wed of this past week and they said it should work just fine with XP. 
Unless something changed with XP in the past couple months there is no reason 
why it shouldn't work. 
I am also interested in what others are experiencing this issue.
