Windows 7: USB2 to IDE & SATA adaptor

USB2 to IDE & SATA adaptor

Hi,

Just got one of these and its misbehaving. What I notice is that when I connect the USB cable (with hard drive attached) my broadband connection continuously drops out, then reconnects. How weird is that!

I have Windows7 64bit and Thompson TG585 v7 router. Any ideas?

Are you using a USB wifi adapter? If so, it may be that the hdd adapter is drawing too much power from the USB port.

No its a cable job. Also it has its own power supply for the HDD. If I just connect the adaptor without the disk then everything is fine. When power is applied to the HDD (connected to the adaptor) then the broadband connection drops out.

I just tried updating my network adaptor driver, but the problem remains. The ad for the offending item described it as VE328/VE225. Does anyone know where I can get latest drivers for it?

That is a strange problem. How many usb2 ports do you have and are they all on the same driver? If you have a usb3 port try attaching the usb-ide-sata adapter to it and see what happens.

I use one of the usb-ide-sata adapters often and have not experienced any problems at all other than it's slow.

There are 6 USB2 sockets on the rear panel, and 2 on the front, but I'm not sure if thats what you mean! The MB is Asus P8Z68-V.

I tried one of the USB3 sockets, and that does the same.

As far as I know you shouldn't need any driver for it for Windows 7. I have a Rosewill RCW-600 USB to SATA & IDE Adapter and haven't needed any drivers to use it. I've used it a couple of times and haven't had any issues.

The drivers I was asking about are the usb drivers. Since the OP used both usb2 & 3 ports that rules out the usb drivers as .20 & 3.0 use a different driver.

You are correct about no driver needed for XP and newer version of Windoze.

Question for the OP. Do you connect the hdd to the ide-usb devise, then power up the hhd before you invert the usb plug? Also the drive needs to have the jumper set to master if it has a jumper.

Yes, I connect up the HDD to the adaptor, then power it up before plugging into the USB port. The disk I am currently using is SATA, so appears as master.

Regarding drivers, when I first plugged it in I got a message saying installing new device driver software.....your device is ready to use.

When looking in Device Manager, a new "USB Mass Storage Device" appears when the adaptor is plugged in, which claims to be using a Microsoft driver dated 21/06/2006, version 6.1.7601.17577. What is that?

Perhaps another clue is that when my broadband cycles on and off, I get a pop up saying ""Additional log on information may be required. When I open that up it says "Your requested host could not be reached. Click on the link below to retry

A further clue perhaps - When connected to my Win7 laptop using the same router with ethernet cable as before, it works fine with no issues.

Have you ever been successful at connecting this ide-sata adapter? The first adapter I purchased was defective out of the box. If you can plug in a usb stick or other usb devises and they are working then this may be a problem with the adapter and not the computer software.
