Windows 7: Icybox SATA/USB3hd has disappeared from W7, but appears on other PC

As above really.

I have a 1gb Seagate drive in an powered Icybox SATA to USB3 enclosure, that has disappeared from my desktop machine. It doesn't show up in drive management, or the bios, even if I change USB sockets (including USB2). The drive is spinning up and Windows 7 makes a USB connect noise, but just won't see the drive. It was going fine for about a month before. My PC sees my unpowered external USB3 drive

However, if I plug it into my laptop (USB2 granted), it's there.

Once you have it connected to your desktop machine, open Disk Management to see if it shows up there. I may just need a letter assigned to it.

Do you get any sounds to acknowledge the USB device being plugged in?

Yes.
I've worked out what's happening, how to fix it, but not why it happened.
It's actually seeing the enclosure as a DTMB BDA TV USB device. I don't know why, as it was working before as a VSi something or other.

I selected "update driver" and selected USB storage device, and it's reappeared. Hopefully, it will stay like that.
I don't know why it happened though.
