tech help needed(solved - thanks!)

    I just bought one of these, well a similar one from ebay…1-2

    i've plugged an old ide drive into it, windows(7) detected the new usb device(and corectly shows the drive make), but it's not showing up under my computer and i can't seem to access the drive, what am i doing wrong?

    i've moved the jumper about from master/slave and just about every other position too.


    do u have adminstrive tools in control panel then computer management and then disk management see if u c it there....................
    im not a win 7 person..............

    i had this, this week on vista. you need to go into disk management and allocate the drive, you then will need to format the drive
