So, I just upgraded my OS from Vista to Windows 7 & my Western Digital MyBook external hard drive isn't being recognized. I contacted Western Digital customer service & I get an email back saying this hard drive isn't compatible with Windows 7.
Now I'm irritated since all my music, video & photos are on this drive. I guess I have to somehow reinstall vista, buy another external hard drive, transfer everything over, then reinstall 7.
Are all external hard drives this way or is this some proprietary BS from Western Digital?
So, can someone recommend a nice 1-2TB external hard drive that won't do this in the future?

What model is it? I have a WD external that gave me the same issue. I just transferred my data elsewhere and reformatted it in 7. Worked fine.
