Problem with usb hard drive

I have a backup drive a wd 5000aavs and my laptop stopped recognizing it today after i formatted the drive with acronis disk director. This also happened with my 16gb san disk flash drive about a month ago. I have uninstalled all drivers for it and let if reinstall still not coming up with the drive just the usd-to-sata adapter. I have a backup pc its running windows xp and it is recognizing everything perfectly. What can i do about my tablet laptop?

try a different usb port if you have one , there seems to be a bit of a problem lately of usb ports dying or check if your usb-sata adaptor is at fault

I just tried all 3 and there was no difference . The adapter is working fine for all my other device(all my ipods, pda and even flash drives). Thanks for the help

are you letting windows find the driver? or are you installing from the supplied disc?
