  1. First thing to check is whether the USB drive works in another computer. If it doesn't, the drive is defective.
  2. a HDD should not need drivers to run, windows should recognize it as a mass storage device and use in-built drivers.

    as JSC said, test in in another system. also, try using a different USB port in case its the port that is defective.

    is the HDD formatted to the right format? is it new? used with another system before now?
