Quite a few don't work. I've tried a couple of memory sticks and they weren't recognised by XP through Parallels. Came up fine in OS X tho, so I just copied what I needed through that. That said, it's not a huge issue for me, and it will be addressed as the program develops. As people have said, if that's your main concern, Boot Camp will run XP as tho it was on any old non-Mac laptop, and that goes for hardware compatibility too.

My main (and perhaps only) annoyance with Parallels is that if I pop a disc in while it's running, XP will pick it up but I can't access it through OS X unless I close Parallels.
