Connecting internal desktop HD to my laptop not recognized

I have a Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 160G HD that I am trying to get data off of from a desktop. I am trying to connect it to a new laptop running windows 8. The usb recognizes a flash drive but not the HD. In computer management nothing shows up in either device manager or disk management. I also tried plugging the HD into all 3 usb ports.
I ordered http://www.ebay.com/itm/USB-TO-IDE-SATA-S-SATA-Converter-CABLE-Adaptor-w-POWER-/130812191130?pt=US_Drive_Cables_dapters&hash=item1e7503a19a
The HD spins when powered up with this cable and the sata to usb I tried in every port, nothing. Any ideas?
