Windows 7: Computer will not recognize 3TB seagate backup plus

Computer will not recognize 3TB seagate backup plus

This is a new laptop I just got setup. The hard drive in question works on other computers. It does not show up in device manager nor disk management. I have another external hard drive that works fine.

Ideas on fixes?
