Drivers needed? ? ?

I have a HP Pavilion dv9205us lap top(product # RP115UA#ABA) with 2g memory, 120g HD, 1.6 GHz AMD Turion 64 X2 Dual-Core processor. I have tried to connect USB external HD (2 different brands-Maxtor 320, Iomega 160) with no luck. At first it recognized the drive then asked for disc or to search for drivers, I have done it both ways(searching in windows files and online with no luck, then is says driver installation failed. Both drives are NTFS. I have tried them (separately) in all usb ports. The ports work for all other uses, it just doesn't work for mass storage devices. I have posted this several places with no luck, the moderator for Iomega board offered one solution, but it didn't work...someone mentioned the bios as the problem, I have also found out this seems to be a pretty common problem, yet no solution.. I have contacted(message through web site- got conformation - that's all) HP also with no luck
