Hello, the following is the best solution from a previous time this question was asked:

Click on Start. In search box, type
cmd
and press Enter. "Command Prompt" will be opened. Now enter the below mentioned commands:
  • set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1
    and press Enter
  • cd \
    and press Enter
  • cd windows\system32
    and press Enter
  • start devmgmt.msc
    and press Enter


"Device Manager" window will be opened. Now in the device manager, click on View > Select Show hidden devices.

Expand all the nodes by clicking on + symbol. If you find any grey or UNKNOWN entries, right click on it and select Uninstall.

Restart your PC. Now try connecting your external drive.
