    Hi,

    I am new to the froum adn I tried searching but couldn't find anything like my issue if there is im sorry but here goes.

    I have a 1tb buffalo hard drive

    Buffalo Drivestation 1TB USB 2.0 External Hard Drive: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics & Photo

    The problem I ahve is that when I connect it to my PC running windows 7 7100 it detects the drive fine and I can sometimes see it in Device manager and Computer and soemtimes I can't when I can see it I can't see the size of the drive or access it. I know the drive works as it's ok on my XP laptop.

    Windows 7 also detects my IDE HDD which is in an external enclosure.

    I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers, disabling and enabling the drive anything else I can try?

    Thanks in advance :)
