Maxtor and Win 7

Hello,
My problem is that it My Maxtor ext 500g Drive worked fine with Vista but as soon as I Upgraded to Win 7 it doesn't. It is recognized and I can even open it but after about 10secs I get an error that "Win Explorer has stopped working, looking for a solution" the solution never comes and evrything closes to a blank desktop.

  1. Try and boot into safe mode (with networking) and update the driver if it doesn't crash.

    Thanks buwish for your reply, I have all the latest drivers and even Device Manager tells me it's working properly.
    All USB ports work except when I tried to install a new TV card but that wouldn't work either. I thought it was probably a driver problem as well but maybe it's just one of those conflicts in the mad computer world. My computer knowledge maybe isn't up for this one. Thx again.
