Windows 7: USB to IDE win 7 missing driver-please help!!???

USB to IDE win 7 missing driver SOLVED

I have purchased two 2.5" IDE hard drive enclosures (thought first one was broken). Whenever i plug in the USB cable, windows 7 tries to install the driver, but does not install the correct driver. I can see in device manager that a mass storage device is plugged in, but I can't access the device (i'm assuming its the wrong driver).

I know the IDE drive works, because if i put it back into my old laptop it boots up just fine (i have win 7 installed on it). Also, I tried installing the drivers on the disk it came with, and checking the manufacturers website without any luck. The enclosure is a Sabrent sbt-eku25.

Does anyone have the driver for USB to IDE on windows 7??? Or any other solution, if this is not it.

Thanks for the response. I tried that but it did not work.

But i did solve the problem by doing the following:

the enclosure came with a "Y" type usb cable where in the end of the cable that goes into the computer there is a power+data cable and a power only cable end. I plugged the power+data into my computer and the power only into the wall socket (i have one of those adapters that lets you charge usb on a wall socket - its for my cell phone). After doing this, I could hear the drive spinning faster. I think it did not work because my laptop does not supply enough power through the usb ports. If i had a desktop this would probably work fine. So in fact, windows 7 does have the drivers built in, I just wasnt getting enough power from my usb hubs.

Now I wish I could just turn up the power on my usb hubs (its probably turned down to save power; but I never unplug my laptop anyways, so it wouldnt matter to me).
