The driver for all external hard drives is built in to Windows -- it's a Microsoft generic mass storage driver.
As such, there is nowhere to download it from because Windows should already have it by default.

Sometimes it's just a drive-letter issue, Windows often fails to assign one to external hard drives but you can assign one manually. Tutorial here: http://www.techfleece.com/2011/08/15/how-to-manually-as...

What brand is your external hard drive?
Generally, nowadays, every manufacture has their own official websites to provide many free tools support for his customers. You could check it there.
