I have removed a non-booting IDE 2.5" hard drive from a laptop. I have connected it to a USB 2.0 port on my desktop with the Ultra USB to IDE/SATA unit.
My desktop has Win XP home edition. Drive C: is the main drive and is an SSD drive. The second hard drive, D: is an IDE drive used for extra storage. I also have a CD reader and a separate DVD writer.
My issue is that neither windows explorer or My Comptuer can see the 2.5 drive connected to the USB port. The other drives are all visible. I know the laptop drive is getting power.
