I have an external USB Hard Drive, Western Digital MyBook WD5000C032, that is not recognized in Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit but works just fine on my XP system.
In Windows 7, is does not appear in Disk Management nor in Device Manager. There is no Safely Remove Hardware notification.
It is like nothing is plugged in at all. I can plug other devices into the same USB port both before and after I connected this drive and they all work fine, even a different external drive.
The WD5000C032 still works correctly if I take it back to the XP system. I have also tried 3 different USB cables.
There doesn't appear to be a driver available from the Western Digital website even though it indicates that the drive is compatible with Windows 7. Any ideas?
