You need to format the external drive. Format the drive as primary drive ans in FAT32.
Insert the external hard drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management.
Then right click on Disk 1 removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted it will indicate that its Healthy.

SOURCE: no external hardrive recognition
It could be that the drive is not formatted/Initialized as yet! Right click on "My Computer" the click on "Manage". Go to(click on) "Disk Management". If the initialize disk wizard comes up automatically then just follow the wizard cause that means your disk needs to be initialized. On the right pane you should see all the disks and their status. It could be that your disk is un allocated. Look for the disk that is full black(black means unallocated), right click on the disk and click on "Create Partition" Follow the steps of the Create Partition Wizard( It will give you the option to format, DO THAT! If when you right on the disk and all that shows is "Initialize", then do that! and go back and create the partition! Hopefully that should do the trick!

Is this a new external with no data on it? If it is, it may need to be formatted.Go to disk management to see if the drive is there. It may need to be initialize first before you can formatted.If it has not been initialized, a message will pop up for you to initialized it. Once it is done, formatted--This should be done only if don't have any data on it.

You need the device drivers for Win-7 for that hard drive to work. You can try to locate one on their website, but I couldn't find any....

Hardware wizards simplify the process of obtaining the correct device driver for a particular device.It can be especially important if a new device is
attached to the computer and no device driver is available locally. you can go to device manager to check the hardware that you have connected & search for proper driver to install. you can search through windows update to update driver for your external hard disk.
