My Book Essential driver not installing in Vista

OK I am a dinosaur still running Vista but I want to save everything before I move on to a newer version of Windows but, even though it should be recognised by Vista, my MyBook Essential TB USB 2.0 compatible Drive is not self loading as it should and I am being asked to find the driver for the “New Hardware”. There was I thinking it would be simple. Can anyone help me please?


Make sure the drive is plugged in directly into a wall outlet. If the drive is not getting enough power to spin properly then the computer may have some issues recognizing it. You can also make sure your computer is up to date with the Windows updates.

Hello, Drive is plugged in
and Windows updates are all up to date.
