My 250 works perfectly with two other Win 7 32-Bit RC1 systems here, but on my newest one, is not being recognized for some reason. When plugged in, the system never loads the device, nor does it show up in Explorer. Both of the other systems were updated from XP Pro > Vista Home Premium > Win 7 RC1; however, the system in question has a clean installation of RC1, no prior versions were installed. This system is also running two 500G WD SATA2’s in a RAID 0 array, the others, one one IDE, the other on a SATA drive.
I’ve tried every port on the system, a total of 10 all told, and none of them will see the drive, but other USB devices work just fine. I am thinking that it either has to do with the clean install, perhaps there was something present in the older versions that isn’t present in the newest install, or it may have something to do with the RAID array in my new system.
Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I use this drive quite a bit to transfer files between work and home, and for game backups. No ends of annoyance to my wife with using her system to transfer my files via Home Group networking.
