IDE hard drive enclosure

I've pulled an old IDE hard drive from a xp computer. chuck it up in my IDE enclosure, plug it into my win7 pc, and nothing. not listed in dev man, computer, or disk manager, zip. i plug the same set up into another xp computer, no prob. i need my win7 pc to recognize it so i can save some info off it. i dont have continuous access to the xp pc i tried it on, so i cant use that one for the rescue. my win7 pc will detect my ata/sata enclosures fine, just not this IDE one.

I use a USB to IDE/SATA kit, like this one. Even with the USB 2.0 limits it moves data fast enough for occasional use. Simple to use, no drivers needed, just plug and play. You can even retrieve from a floppy disk.
