    Hi, forgive the obvious questions:
    1. does any other device work on your USB ports?
    2. is the drive receiving power when connected - e.g. an LED on or sound?
    3. can you swap the USB lead, and if so, have you tried it?
    4. does the drive work on any other PC?

    (I use external drives - no problem).

    Go in services and change Computer Browser and UPnP Device Host to Automatic and reboot the PC
