Per the email I received from Simpletech:

SOLUTION: You might need to initialize the drive.

Right click on “My Computer” or “Computer” on Vista.
Select “Manage”
On the next screen select “Disk Management”
In the lower middle section you should be able to find your drive.
It will show up as Disk 1 or Disk 2….depending on how many drives you have in your computer.
If you click on the area that says Disk # you should get and option to “initialize drive”.
Also to the right it should show the allocation information for the drive. If it says “unallocated” then the drive needs to be partitioned.
Right click on the white box next to the drive listing.
Select the option “New Partition”
This will bring up the partition wizard and you will need to step through this process.
Select a primary partition.
On the next screen accept the maximum size it will provide.
On the next screen you assign a drive letter.
On the next screen you will do the format and accept the default settings.
The formatting will start and will be busy until it is complete.
You can monitor this from the disk management window.

You will need to download a Windows 7 driver for the drive from SimpleTech. Chances are VERY great that there are no Windows 7 drivers developed for this drive. A call to SimpleTech's support line may provide you with a workaround if you can't locate a driver online.

Hello jajogeglez,

You may need to use another USB device, be it another flash drive to narrow down if it's just your Simpledrive that's causing this.

You can also update the USB devices under your Device Manger using the CD driver for your motherboard.

Hope this helps.
