    Driver Database Corrupted - Trying to use an external Hard Drive

    I connect the external Hard drive, the computer recognizes the connection, it
    recognizes it is a USB Mass Storage Device, but then won't install/run the
    appropriate drivers.

    I at one point got it to recognize my Hard Drive, but when I disconnected my
    Hard Drive and attempted to connect it another time, it went back to not
    recognizing it.
