Hello,
my windows 2000 PC died, bought a new gateway i3 windows 7 pro 64 bit, bought an external IED to usb2 drive enclosure, removed my 2000 IDE drive (MAXTOR DIAMONMAX10 model 6L250R0) - removed the jumper from drive to make it a slave -- and connected it to my new windows 7 pro 64 bit PC - message displayed once that said no compatible driver - now does nothing - does not recognize a usb device is even there - does not show on any windows screen (explorer, manager, usb.....) - any idea how to get a driver that will work????? and how to install it???

Check if it shows up in your BIOS. If the BIOS doesn't see it, then Windows won't.

Usb drives must have the Master jumper/ not the slave.

That may be your problem as I cannot imagine MS not having a generic usb mass storage driver for 64 bit v of windows

I guess (once you select the right jumper config), if it still doesn't work you can try manually selecting a driver instead of relying on the plug and play driver
