i had the drivers on a external hard drive for windows 7 but for some reason they have been erased how can i get the drivers back ?
Welcome to the Apple Support Communities
If you have OS X Mountain Lion or Lion, press X key while your Mac is starting to start into OS X, open Boot Camp Assistant and download the drivers. Then, restart and install them on Windows.
If you have Mac OS X Snow Leopard, the drivers are included on the Snow Leopard disc, so insert it and install them
