Thank you Jumanji! :) The links work by us as well.

Gobyerno2012, yes, do go over very thoroughly through the links and try updating the SES drivers, although they are not that needed to help your system recognize the drive, for this you need Answer ID 1708 from WD KB (second link). But do update and let's see what happens. :)

Also, I was hoping you'd open the Disk Drives falling menu, on the same window of Device Manager but on the top. Take a screenshot of that.

Please also fully answer the questions from my previous post #8 about how long has the drive been use din Windows 7 and what occurred as actions prior to the issue. Additionally, how is the drive formatted and its capacity, and the usual troubleshooting - changing the cable, the port and trying on another PC.

First post

I tried PW9 but it cannot detect my External HD... I tried different cable and also plugged it to different computer but still not working....
Does the drive has a special little portion that holds the drivers or something? Maybe that got corrupted?
