Win 7 64bit: How do I perform a search that includes my removable(Seagate) HD?

It doesn't seem to work

In Windows Explorer run a search for:

Minimum file size, type size:>30,000KB and press Enter. File type extension, type type:=.mp3 and press Enter. Using a partial filename, type filename:x in the search box (where x represents the partial filename you want to search for). Search for a specific phrase, type content: followed by your phrase enclosed in double quotes.

Press F3 and do a selected search for Removable disk.

You may need patience. I have a Seagate drive that takes ages to be recognised by W7 64 bit. When I say "ages" it probably isn't, just seems that way, but one minute is quite common.

Try plugging it in and then making yourself a cup of tea/coffee.
