Question about Hitachi (hts545050b9a300) 500 GB SATA Hard Drive
Plug in Acer external harddrive, has a Hitachi hts545050b9a300 usb drive inside, computer cannot install drivers for this device
Rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours http://download.cnet.com/slimdrivers-free/3000-18513_4-75279940.html Windows XP/Vista/7/8
it might take some time being a freeware driver solution Note: it will find all of your outdated drivers
This will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point.
Click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated.
Hope this helps.

Sir, your PC might have been checking for external devices which plugged in to boot from. Thats wrong. So get into the bios of your computer while startup and change the 1st boot device to your computer's hard disk. And its a bad idea, starting your computer with a usb device plugged in.

SOURCE: I installed Windows 7 and
Try to install it ...Probably the installation will be automatically ...Just insert it ..and after that go to device manager if it do not start auto ..and in the device manager list click right on it ..and update driver...This will kick it to start the add new hardware wizard and install it ..This is a removable storage device ..and it should have been given a drive letter automatically in Computer folder..anyway ..Look again first maybe you missed it somehow ..and if it came with a driver install it ..or ..much more simpler is to get into control panel and start the add new hardware wizard directly and let it be installed ..if the computer do not sense it when you add it in usb ...
If it wont work ...let me know more..

1. Decide which hard drive will be the startup (master) drive. If this drive was the startup drive previously, or if it's a new hard drive, then the master drive designation will already be set.
2. To change the designation of a new drive to be a slave drive, skip to step 4.
3. To change the designation of an existing drive to be a slave drive: Turn off the computer, unplug the power cord, remove the drive from its drive bay, and disconnect the drive from its power cord and ribbon cable.
4. Check the hard drive documentation or the label on the drive itself for master/slave jumper settings.
5. Find the jumpers on the circuit board of the drive. Jumpers are plastic plugs with metal sleeves that form a circuit between a pair of pins. Jumper locations are labeled on the board with a J followed by a number (such as J20).
6. Use tweezers or very small pliers to remove or reposition the jumpers to the configuration shown in the documentation or on the disk label.

SOURCE: the external harddrive cannot
click start control panel administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or
if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems also make sure the computers Ram and Cmos battery are securely seated
hope this helps
