I have a new laptop with windows 7 on it. My previous laptop was a Windows XP machine and that was the machine I had originally installed the external drive on and had put some backup on that device. I am guessing I cannot restore anything to my Windows 7 laptop but that is not really the issue. When I plug the device into the new laoptop I get the message:
Unkown USB Device
I downloaded the device driver from the Western Digital download site and installed it. I even rebooted my laptop but I am still getting the error. Help is appreciated… Note, I can see the device driver in “add/remove programs” in control panel.
