External Hard drive not showing up in 'My Computer', and 'Disk Management'

  1. The Seagate Momentus 5400.6 hard drive I'm using is from my old laptop it has 4 disks.
    After I put it in the (IT-CEO IT-700) enclosure, and connect it to my new laptop it does not show up in 'My Cumputer' and 'Disk Management', but displays in the 'device and printer' section of control pannel.
    I also can't eject the hard drive, even when I'm not doing anything to it, the (IT-CEO IT-700) enclusre's blue signal light just keeps flashing for a while then goes off for a sec, then resume flashing again.
    My laptop also keeps trying to install the hard drive.

    I tried reinstall the hard drive's driver, but that did not solve the problem.

    Please Help.

    Have you tried using different drive enclosure other than the IT-CEO IT-700?
