external HD not showing in MY Computer
WD 1Tb sitting in a BlackX box.
Not sure if this is in the correct place.
Had this problem before but just can't remember how I fixed it.
I took the HD to Wiffies computer and it worked fine there running Windows 7 Pro 32-bit.
I am running Windows 7 Pro 64-bit.
When looking in "Devices and Printers", it states that the HD is working properly.
It also states that it has the latest driver.
Thanks for this site and any help.

Yes, I see that. Seems to conflict with the report that its showing up in Devices and Printers. Can you right click it there to run Troubleshooter or Diagnose? What options are available. Can we see a Properties box?
You have problems with your Disk Mgmt which is a mess. What I would do is use Partition Wizard
bootable CD to Extend partition easily with Partition Wizard - video help.
This is the coolest feature on the hottest tool we use here. All you need to do is click a partiiton you want to extend, then select where you want to extend it as shown in the video above. It will even borrow space from non-adjacent partitions.
I would rightclick C to extend into the 1.95 wasted space, click OK, then again rightclick C to take as much of the 823gb space as you want into C as well. Then click the other partitions to borrow any of the remaining Unallocated wasted space as you want into them.
Finally, if this is the original HP preinstalled Windows 7 that is a corrupt bloated mess that no tech enthusiast would run. I suggest you look over the steps to get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7, make the preparations given, ask back any questions, then after backing everything up boot the Windows 7 installer as a UEFI device, delete all partitions as shown in Steps 7 and 8 of Clean Install Windows 7 to create new ones as you wish, install Windows 7 to the first partition after the UEFI boot partition the installer will create for you.
