I've used the drive before, but it's been awhile- probably a year or so. My desktop, a late model Dell, which also runs windows 7 can see it, but doesn't seem to recognize it as a drive per se. It shows up on the list of peripheral devices, but isn't shown in the list of drives when it's running.
I can't recall if I've used it directly on the laptop or not, which is what I tried to do today.
The external drive is only about 2-3 years old.
I'll try to give you as much info as you need, but may need you to ask the questions first, as I seem to have little abilty to troubleshoot or understand computer related problems.
