... with it plugged in go to start> run (type) devmgmt.msc [press ENTER]

... do you see any yellow markers?

... also try rebooting with the device plugged in.

... unhook the drive... tap "F8" key @ boot-up select safe mode

... once in safe mode a "pop-up" will appear prompting you to "system restore"

... select a restore point date before you had this problem.

... let it do the restore and start windows fully before you plug in the external drive again!
