Cypress AT2LP RC58 - Windows 7 not recognizing external drive

  • Hey guys, 
    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.  
  • Have you run all your updates? If so, try unplugging it, rebooting, then plugging it back in once Windows loads.

  • Yeah, I have everything else updated running and like I said, it was recognized fine last night.
