Hello caption and welcome to Seven Fourms.

1. Have you tried using a different USB port on the Windows 7 computer?
2. What does Disk Management show? Please post a screenshot. Maximize the screen shot window before posting so all info is visible.

3. Open Device Manager and see if any of the USB controllers are showing yellow or red warnings. Could indicate a driver problem.
