No special drivers should be required for that drive.

What is your issue?

If this is an additional hard drive then look for it in Windows Disk Management. Will not show up in Computer until you partition and format it.

It looks as though it should have come with an installation cd. all of the drivers should be included, and the setup suggestions. Otherwise I would inquire with

Note that I see no ad-free drivers else where. However they may be able to point you to were the drivers can be aquired.

✔ Best Answer
No drivers are needed for hard drives. The only driver that MIGHT be needed would be your SATA drivers and those you get from your system manufacture's site or motherboard mfg's site.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Solved!! All I needed to do was do a total disk wipe/erase, eliminating disk and partition designators. I had to wipe the HD 3 times to get any old residual data completely off -- that's one right after the other for a thorough wipe. After that, Windows 7 loaded without any oddball requests for drivers or any error messages.

Thanks to all for helpful suggestions! [ I have no idea how to mark my entry as "SOLVED." But, this one is solved.

Thanks much,
