Windows 7: reading a HDD in a Caddy

The Drive could be of RAW format and therefore cannot be access by Windows.

I believe aem is going in the right direction here. From what I have read, the Humax drives aren't in FAT32, NTFS, or any other recognized format, but in it's own, proprietary format.

Well the caddy doesn't help, try using this.

Brando USB 2.0 to SATA/IDE Cable

It has to be picked up in device manager cos it's a usb device. If it has then go into Disk Management and see what it shows up as.

After a bit of searching it seems the recordings may be MPEG 2, so why doesn't Windows see it.?

The issue is the caddy isn't get recognised, you said no errors after you attached it but is it showing in Device Manager?

The files can be in mpeg2, but as mentioned, if the drive format is something Windows can't read, there's nothing you can do about it. Search for what formatting the drives are, and then see if there's a driver available to read that format. You may end up booting a Linux LiveCD to access the drive...if Windows can't read it, but Linux can. You don't need to be worrying about the caddy or anything like that until you can verify the format of the drive.

This is the USB, I think you've put your finger on the problem, Deacon,
This is with one of my normal HDD's inserted.
With the Humax drive in it doesn't show the Auto play
