Its like the computer cant see the hard drive! I wondered if anyone had any ideas out there or come across the problem before? I read about formatting the disk but it wont give me that option when the device is plugged in.
Hi, I had a similar problem wit an iomega drive, win7 didnt want to know about it no matter what i did. Dont ask why but I hooked it up to a xp pc and it saw it. I reformatted it on the xp pc machine, and voila win7 said hello to it. It now works fine on win 7.
