Windows 7: Clash between Sabrent 2.0 to SATA/IDE Hard Drive Adapter with Windows

Clash between Sabrent 2.0 to SATA/IDE Hard Drive Adapter with Windows

Interaction (interface?) between a Sabrent USB 2.0 to SATA/IDE Hard Drive Adapter Product Code: USB-DSC5 and my Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

I am having an issue with the following situation:
When connected to IDE Drives Maxtor and Western Digital, and through the usage of Windows 7 it tellls me that the Hard Drive "is not ready". Is that a message originated by the Windows 7 software?
If so how do I go about "getting the disk ready" so i could change disk type or number or sizes of each partition and/or reformat?


I would appreciate your support to help me solve this unexpected report from the Windows 7 interaction with this adapter and the Hard Drives it holds, 40 GB and 80 GB IDE drives Maxtor and Western Digital. I am trying to use Windows (or some other third party software) to resize the partitions, change the disk type and eventually reformat.

Thank you kindlly

Check the power & DATA cables.
When using IDE HD Drives, make there are set to master.
