I have a Maxtor One Touch 4+ 500GB External Hard Drive. I have been running Windows XP with it for years with no problems.
I recently upgraded to Windows 7 and the Windows 7 won't even recognise my Maxtor External HD. What's up?

Check device manager adn see if the USB ports are functional. Do other USB devices show up?

Open "Start" and right click "Computer">manage>disk management and see if the drive shows up there.

May need to assign a drive letter and format.
