Windows 7 Professional x64

I am guessing it is not a jumper issue, if it detects the drive at all.

Windows 7 x64 Ultimate


Should have tried it earlier!!!!

I was using the power supply that came with the IDE to USB device i have for convenience as the leads from the power supply in the case are all nicely tied in a bundle and this IDE drive is outside my case.

Now that I have plugged it into a propper power supply it is totally okay.

I've installed teracopy also and it is being used although i don't think it is needed anymore tbh but good to have all the same.

This really should have dawned on me earlier.

Thanks again for everyones help!!
