Ok, I've had this external hard drive for a while and it used to work. I lost the power supply, and never got around to buying another one until today.

I got the power supply, plugged it into the computer, and turned it on.

However, my computer won't recognize that it's there and I need to move some stuff from my computer's main hard drive to the external so that I can have some more space.

So it's plugged in and on, but not showing up in My Computer's list of hard drives. Does anyone know a possible solution to this problem?

I have Windows 7, if it makes a difference..

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Check your power supply to ensure it is compatible.

This. If you don't have the software, try looking for it online.

windows 7 automatically installs things like external hard drives by searching the net, it does it with printers, scanners and stuff like that too. i know because i've got it. installed my external hard drive, printer, scanner, even webcam all without discs. PLUS external hard drives are usually plug-and-play anyway so 99% of the time there's no need for the disc.

maybe unplug and re-plug in then if that still don't work, try different USB ports?
