Windows 7: Seagate GoFlex Desk Driver

Seagate GoFlex Desk Driver

I purchased a 2TB Seagate GoFlex Desk External HDD and Windows did not auto-detect it. So I went under Device Manager and under Other Devices, the Seagate drive was listed with the yellow exclamation. It shows that the driver is not found. I had windows search online and it found nothing. The only way I know to get it back is to do a repair/restore of windows. I am afraid to do this as I have to much to risk losing. Is there any other way to obtain this driver.

PS:

I plugged the device into another computer also running Windows 7 (only home not pro) and it auto-detected right away. So I know for sure the device works.
My computer though is most definitely missing the driver.

Just a thought. If I have another computer running the same OS, just home not pro, and it recognizes the drive, is there a way to tell what driver it is using? If so, can I just copy the driver to my computer?

One more thought. What if I try and download some chipsets?

Similar Problem with 1TB Go Flex Home,
Run Win 7 Home Prem. can't detect drive, this thing has put me through the wringer. Just thought I'd add in case of future class action.
Picked it up on Vista, which came and went like cars on a highway... Expensive paper weight at this point!

Sorry, no help here. I have 500G Seagate Go Flex and it works fine on both my Vista (as USB2)and my Windows 7 (USB3)computers.

I'm sorry, but I can't help either. I have a 1 tb Seagate GoFlex external. It works with both my Vista home premium desktop and my Windows 7 home premium 64-bit laptop and has done so since I got it.
