I bought an I/O Magic USB 2.0 Enclosure for 3.5" Hard Drive to use with my new HP running Windows XP Pro. My old W2000 machine died last week and it was time for a proper burial. The old machine was IDE and the new is S-ATA. This enclosure worked fine with my primary hard drive from the old machine, but I had a second hard drive installed as a slave for file backup. I can't get to the files on that second hard drive.
I put the primary drive in the enclosure and connected it to the new computer. Windows pops up with the "New Hardware found" message, and the drive appears in My Computer. Everything's great. When I try the second hard drive (which was slaved) I get the "New Hardware" message, but it never appears in My Computer. When I click to "safely remove hardware" it appears as a WDC WD12 USB Device (which is the Western Digital hard drive). So it seems to recognize the drive, but it doesn't show up in My Computer. I've tried all of the jumper settings and it didn't make a difference. Any help would be much appreciated!
