SOURCE: driver problem
I have the following questions to evaluate the problem.
1) What's the port your harddrive supported? Is it standart IDE cable or SATA.
I have a hardrive utility software that can detect and access any type of harddrive but you need install it at running windows.
Please email email@example.com and dont forget to used the subject "Driver Problem" if sound interesting for you.

OK, 2 things to check. First and foremost, when you plug it into the PC does it make that nifty noise to let you know it sees a new piece of hardware?
Second, if it does, you probably need to initialize the disk. Hit the windows button, right click on computer, and select manage. Under the storage category highlight Disk management. If you see the drive there, you can right click and select initialize, or format. From there the system should see the drive.

try to format the external HDD using command prompt.....
type "cmd" in start & search box and hit enter...
command prompt will be opened...
Now type "format X:" where X=your external hdd drive letter....
if it does not format then right click on my computer icon> goto manage >select Disk management> select the external drive> right click and delete partition > again right click and select create partition > again right click and select Format drive.....
this will fix the issue....

you might have to alternate doing this repeatedly until the problem is resolved

click start control panel administration 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
if this fails to fix the problem
you might have to install a usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap
but if windows 7 and xp are not picking it up and are on separate computers a usb 2 or 3 card might not work
hope this helps
