Windows 7: Drive with System Images not Found when restoring

Drive with System Images not Found when restoring

I am trying to restore a backup system image. The problem is none of the drives (other than the drive windows 7 was installed on) show when the recovery disk utility scans for the file. I have saved the image to multiple drives to no avail as none of them are found when the recovery utility scans for them. I can't find them when I try to select them manually either (reference step 4 in tutorial).

I'm totally lost and frustrated. Both drives, an internal sata and an external usb seagate freeagent desk drive, are found just fine and dandy when going to my computer. They just aren't found when I try to use the recovery utility.

Thanks for your help in advance
