Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. Check the power and EIDE cable connections to make sure they are correct and secure. Also make sure the master/slave pin setting is correct. You could also try deleting the device, then reboot and let windows detect and reinstall it, but check the cables and settings first!

The master/slave settings are accomplished by moving a small jumper on the back of the drive. There is usually a table or diagram that shows what is master, slave etc right on the drive. If this drive shares the eide cable with another drive, one must be master and the other slave.
