Although I have seen it fail often, in your case it is worthwhile to try the 'Add hardware' wizard in the Control Panel.
If you have an installation disk of any kind, have it at hand.
Let the system look for the drive (plugged in of course) and if it finds it and has no drivers for it, it will ask for the installation disk but you may have to tell Win where to look for it by drive letter.
If you don't have an installation disk, you will have to go through the drivers list offered to see if SimpleTech is listed.
SimpleTech still has an active website so I would check there first:
SimpleTech support page
If you have no luck you find no driver, there are several websites that have a huge array of drivers for current and obsolete hardware.

I got one with the same problem. I opened up the case and hooked up the hard drive to a generic usb to sata adapter that i picked up on ebay and it works fine now if a bit clunky looking.

SOURCE: I can't delete files
Do a "disk cleanup"
Click on [My Computer]
Right-click on the External drive (D?)
In the [General] tab, click on [Disk Cleanup]
It will "scan" your drive, but not remove anything... alow it to complete the scan.
Look at the recommended list that appears and accept its findings.
This should remove non-essential files and leave your data intact.
Burn some of your data, especially video content to DVD (make at least two copies) ... then remove the data from your external hard drive.
You may want to purchase another (larger) external drive. You can use two of them or move your data to the new one.
