Reseat both the Hard Drive and Optical drive and see if they detect. If they do not, then a HDD failure is most likely. The I8000 is quirky in that if the HDD fails, the Optical drive will not work.
If reseating doesn't resolve, Replace the HDD and the optical drive should work. (Controller is a serial design and neither drive will function if the other fails)

Your drive is being recognized. However, your computer only has USB 1.1 so you are being notified that USB 2.0 is faster. This message is FYI and will not prevent you from accessing the drive.
After you see that message you should see your external drive in "My Computer" If you don't see the drive you probably need to assign an available drive letter to drive.
Open Windows Help and Support.
Search for "drive letters" and find "assigning drive letters"
This will walk you through the process.
