I have found a driver page of simpletech:
http://www.simpletech.com/support/support_downloads.php
I believe that driver for your model is not available in the above link.
The drive would not be recognized when it is not compatible with your notebook hard disk.
I suggest you to contact simpletech for getting the drivers as they will have the hard disk drivers.

My SimpleDrive 500GB external hard drive is now only recognized as "USB Mass Storage Device" that I cannot access. I have uninstalled the driver and scanned for the hardware and it reinstalls it as USB...


You can try:
  1. another USB cable
  2. try it on another computer
That will rule out the USB and any software/driver issues on your computer. If it doesnt work after that, there could be a problem with the drive itself

SimpleTech PininFarina external hard drive - site to download drivers


the hard drive you have is plug n play.
if windows does not recognize it, you may have to uninstall the hard drive.
right click your computer. click properties.
click on the "Hardware" tab. Click on "Device Manager".
open the category of "Disk Drives".
If you see your drive with a yellow exclamation point or a red "X", continue. If it does not, either it was dropped or its a faulty drive.
Right click your drive and click "Unistall". Click OK.
Now, unplug the drive and plug it in again.
it will install by itself.
Go to my computer and check that its there. If its not, you may have a bad drive. either send it for a new one (if still in warranty) or replace it.
