My External Hard is not recognized.

I have a 3 Tera HDD. (WD My Book Essential (USB 3.0)). Last night I uninstalled a software which I do not remember its name by mistake. Apparently it was related to my WD hard drive for my computer does not recognize it anymore. I checked my device manager; "Base System Device" is not recognized. I ran windows troubleshooting. It says "Base System Device" Driver is not found. I searched a lot, but I couldn’t find the driver. I also ran drive checker software. It says:

Device name: JMB38X SD/MMC Host Controller
File name: MSI_GX633_Card For Win7.zip
Hardware ID: PCI\VEN_197B&DEV_2382

I could not find this too.

I also have another portable WD which is still recognized by my computer.

I would be grateful if you could help me out with this.



Regards,

Omid Sahradoust

do a system restore that should put everything back to the state it was before you uninstalled the software.
