Hello, for a thorough list of troubleshooting steps with regards to usb and usb drives, try the following link. Make sure to follow the steps of everything you start. Even if you think you have done it before...try it again.
try to use in compatibility mode for windows vista
also in dvice manager are there any yellow marks? if yes right click on it uninstall the external hard drive. Unplug the usb cable. Plug it back in.
reboot and windows will instal a new compatible driver, otherwise go to the manufacturer website and look for windows7 driver.
