Hi i think you need to change the jumper settings on the back of the hd to tell your comp that this isnt the main hd if you have allready done this then the only sollution is to trace down the software that came with that hd.
You might be able to get it off the net i will also look for you and check to see if the jumper setting are causing you problems i will post back as soon as i find anything out ok let me know how you get pn

Vista has a big problem recognizing usb drives - and no one has one right way to fix this yet. The first thing you should try is installing this update from microsoft that combines all USB hotfixes into one download. (it's update 941600). Scroll down to "More Information" and download the version of the fix that applies to your vista installation.
If that still doesn't work, try following the instructions here, and deleting your .inf files.
