Windows 7: HP MEdia Drive

Windows 7
HP MEdia Drive

I have a HP Media Drive HD5000s. I can't get windows to recognize this device. When I goto HP all i can do is install the Vista driver and it says that driver is not compatable with Windows 7. Any suggestions?

It won't work in the media bay or dirct usb hookup. Windows states an unrecognizable USB Device.

Search on data / media drive
Hey what's up all. So I just noticed that the search feature on the Start menu doesn't search for items on my data drive, only the C drive. This sucks because all my songs and picture albums are on the data drive... any solution to this?
