Re: DRIVERS FOR WINDOWS VISTA
When you plug in your external drive, Windows Vista will 'see' it on plug and play basis. The drive should have a cd with drivers included. If not, you'll need to go to that manufacturer's website, and get the new Vista drivers(not a bad idea, since most driver disks will be a tad out of date, anyway).

Which Operating system are you currently using? By default XP/Vista/7 should have generic drivers sufficient for using the device as external storage, To Check and make sure the drive is being properly recognized simply double click on the "My Computer" icon on your desktop if using windows XP. Or in Vista/Windows 7, click on the Start Button and then scroll over to Computer and Click. the hard drive should be listed in there. Take note of the drive letter . If you'd like to save items to it simply save to the new drive ( when within the program of your choice, Word, Windows Media Player etc ) by selecting the new drive in the "Save To" Window. ( Be Default most windows systems should store all information on the C:\ Drive ) your new external drive should be listed with a different letter ( F:\ G:\ etc )
