    Have you tried installing the normal drivers for it?

    External hard drive ( USB ) should not need any special drivers.

    Does it work on other machines ?

    I have heard  of issues where drives are not recognized in VISTA but are OK on other OS's.

    I hope this helps !

    not recognized on my machine (windows vista home basic) but works on another windows vista refer to question "usb device not recognized" by me.

    trying possible solutions, also could do with a vista driver for trust wireless mouse 14797 cant find one on their site.

    Please see the post installation procedures about, 7/8 down the page, on the following link for a cumulative rollup update for USB devices.

    I am giving you this entire page, instead of clicking on the USB fix, because there are many issues Vista has overcome that you may need more inforation on.

    Also SysExpert is right. External hard disks shouldn' t need Drivers.
