Windows 7: Docking Stations unable to access HDD

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
Docking Stations unable to access HDD

I have an old IDE HDD which used to be attached to my PC via a PCI RAID Card since the motherboard I have was too new and didn't have a port of the motherboard for an IDE Data Connection(that wide ribbon cable) but sadly that card has become less than reliable and I need to find another way to keep this HDD connected.
So I purchased a docking station but nowI have a problem with a Docking Station I purchased not too long ago, it's a Ritmo CD-877UK. But when I try to access the HDD that is in the docking station(shows up as a Removable Drive in Explorer) it says "Please insert a disk into drive F:"like there's nothing in there. I can't do anything with it in Disk Management and it has no volumes. The CD that came with the Docking Station didn't have any drivers on it, just utilities. Is there some way of getting this Docking Station to work properly with my HDD' or is it better to just get an enclosure and have the HDD as an external/portable drive
