Windows 7: *Mass storage device* driver cant be installed?

*Mass storage device* driver cant be installed?

Recently i have bought a new brand new computer and installed windows 7 64bit on it. It works perfectly fine until recently when I wanted to use my old external HDD : AH052S but it seems it cant install something.
A little note pops up saying that there is a new device detected and suggests installing the driver needed for it so I just wait.

But after it tries to install, a little red X marker indicates it hasnt installed properly.
Then I check out whats wrong seems to be a (Code 52) faulty digital signature.

So I have tried to uninstall the ghost driver from device manager and re-install a couple of times still no luck. I have also tried different usb cables. I also tried deleting INFCACHE.1 still no luck so after all that I finally tried using different devices. I used a flash drive from my phone and also tried my PSP system they all fail to install. I also ran in safe mode and tried to open my HDD but all it does is try to install again but then it just fails again. There is nothing wrong with my devices since I had a windows XP computer wich opened all these perfectly fine. I am kind of lost what to do here any suggestions?

EDIT: Forgot to mention that none of these devices actually need a driver.

Im afraid none of those methods worked. I tried a similair program to the driverwizard and I installed updates but nothing has changed yet. Maybe if someone could send me a proper driver of Mass storage device for Windows 7 64 bit (6,1 Build 7600).

YES! I Did a windows update and after that an extended HDD check and it solved the problem! The driver seemed to be corrupt and windows fixed it everything works now!

Thanks!
