My Hitachi hard drive is compatible with Windows 7. This hard drive has been working properly with my older computer using Windows XP. I can see the device in the Device Manager, but I cannot view files. In Disk Management, the drive is listed in the lower portion of the screen but says "No Media," however there is nearly 50 gb of information stored.
The hard drive shows in the list of devices and printers when I open that folder, but does not show up in the list of hard disk drives on My Computer.
