SATA/IDE to USB adapter not recognized RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi. I am using a Scythe SATA/IDE Hard Drive to USB adapter cable on a SATA hard drive. I hear the computer "beep" when the USB device is attached and the ico in the system tray shows up. However no disk is recognized either in my Computer or in Disk Management MMC. This adapter works fine on W2K3, XP and Vista.

  • Are you connecting this into Windows Home Server or one of your home computers?

  • Do you see any unknown devices in Device Manager?


    A quick way to get to this on Windows Home Server (not the console) is to

    • hold the Windows button
    • and hit your Break key. 

    Other wise you can :

    • right click my computer,
    • and hit properties,
    • click the hardware tab,
    • then click device manager

  • An even quicker way: use the link to Device Manager that Windows Server 2003 drops on the Administrator desktop.
