Woke up yesterday morning to a clicking hard drive. Obviously the thing was shot so I went and grabbed a 2 TB hard drive from Micro Center and reinstalled Windows 7 64 bit. I have had a 500gb external hard drive connected to various computers for a couple years and suddenly today it is no longer recognized. It was recognized last night after I had reinstalled Windows however it is no longer recognized this morning, When I got into Device Manager there is a yellow exclamation mark next to "Cypress AT2LP RC58. "
I found this solution for Windows XP, supposedly it works I have no idea, but I can't find a similar solution for Windows 7.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. It looks like this is more than a simple driver issue.
