I have two Hitachi drives... one with Vista one with Windows 7
I have a third drive with songs, movies, ect. its a Seagate Barracuda.
Vista recognizes the drive... and everything works fine.
But when i installed Windows 7 today it doesn't seem to be able to find the drive... it worked fine back in the spring when i had the beta installed.
The drive POSTS in the BIOS, and it shows up in the device manager. Also, in command prompt, when i type in F: (the drives name) it says "The device is not ready."
does anyone have any suggestions?
i've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drive, updating drivers, firmware... nothing seems to work
Right click on "My Computer" and go to manage. From there access the storage devices and see if it shows there. If it does, you should be able to make it visible in my computer. However, when I've had this problem it has always had me format the HDD, so watch out for that.
