>> Can't see external USB Hard Drive???
by theboxer5 - 1/14/10 6:40 PM
Hi I bought a PC USB to IDE/SATA Converter Cable and I connect a 2.5" laptop IDE internal hard drive to my USB port. I see it's being connected under the right icon of "Safely Remove Hardware" as a USB Mass Storage Device. But in My Computer I DON'T see the external hard drive at all?? How can I see the hard drive so I can get some data from it. This also happen when I connect a 3.5" desktop IDE internal hard drive to the USB port. Somehow it don't show up in my computer.
But the funny thing is if I connect an IDE CD-ROM drive it works fine. What's going on? Any help is appreciated.
I'm using Windows XP Pro SP3.
The usb cabe is 13796 PCA BUSBX0017 and I bought it at Amazon at this link : http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001OORMVQ/ref=s9_simz_gw_s0_p23_t2?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=0BPFY6K3871PMBVJ8S50&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=470938631&pf_rd_i=507846
