Sometimes turning the external device power off and back on solves this problem for me.

Subject: Strange Windows 7 Issue Regarding External Device Listings Under My Computer
I have just noticed a problem on the newly-acquired Windows 7 laptop I’m working with.
When I insert a media storage device into one of the USB ports, such as an external hard drive, or a thumb drive, the computer gives me the sound indicating that the device is recognized. However, the device is not listed as an available device under “My Computer”.
The only way I can get the new device to come up under “my computer” is to shut down and then re-boot the computer.
Is there a setting that I need to change in Windows 7 to get these external devices to be automatically recognized and listed in the usual way?
I’m using Windows 7 and Jaws 17 here.
