Windows 7 will not recognize USB HDD devices
Thank you everybody for sharing your advice. I see many people have had similar issues and had it resolved. Sorry if this sounds like a repeat, but having read through many responses, I have not found what will fix my problem.
Last week, I installed Windows 7, build 7600, 64-bit. It's great, except the issues with driver compability, etc.; and now this. I have two different Hard Drives, both connected via USB, that the system does not recognize at all.
Both have their own power source and previously worked in Windows Vista 64-bit, and both are barely one year old with no prior issues. The Black Widow (below) also is less than one year old.
#1 is a Quantum Fireball lct in an Acomdata enclosure;
#2 is a Maxtor SATA connected through a Thermaltake Black Widow docking station. I do not have another SATA drive to test in it but am positive it is in perfect condition.
Both hard drives mentioned are for backups and I really need to
access a b/u set.
I have reviewed the information in the disk management msc, the disks do not appear at all.

No device errors. What drivers? These are USB connected hard drives.
I did go back and change the setting to allow for automatic play of devices - that didn't help either.
I plug in these devices and they are not seen at all. There is no damage to either unit, their power supplies, or cords. They worked last when I was running Vista 64-bit, and they ran just fine.
