Question about Computers & Internet
Assuming this is a USB external drive, U cannot use it as an operating system... only storage. Vista and XP os's are attached to the pc's cpu serial number. this storage drive must be formated in NTFS to be swapped between XP and Vista.

Power cycle the drive itself; once the interface is reset or the power restored to the external drive, Vista will be happy with it again (I rather expect.) Don't forget to put vibration isolation mounts under your drives if summer construction/excavation is coming.

Tips for a great answer:
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
if this fails to fix the problem
check usb leads for secure dust free seating
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
hope this helps
