That's strange that it works under Vista and not Windows 7, but I would rule out computer or USB issues if other devices work just fine on that port. Your other option would be to virtualize XP or Vista, and connect the drive to that OS.

What version of Windows 7 are you running?

But If you booting virtual machine,It willl be good to virtualize Vista.(Because you say that it was working on Vista)

We aren't talking about virtual drives. We're talking about Virtual Machines. Since you have Home Premium, XP Mode won't be an option, but the free VirtualBox is. You mentioned having previous copies of Vista, so you'll need one of those licenses.
