connecting old external hard drives to new computer

i bought a HP Pavilion G7 about 6 months ago with windows 7 installed. i have been trying to connect my WD my book external harddrive to this but it wont connect. i had it synced to a computer that had windows XP. i was wondering if there is any way that i can download a certain driver that will let me connect this harddrive without formatting it and syncing it that way

Hi,

 

Could be in this. Please download and install it on your machine But W7 should be able to find it, I don't know why.

 

Regards.
