Couple of tips: follow the instructions carefully, apparently it is important on how you connect the cables. Here's what they told me:
1) Start by plugging the included SATA cable (the rectangular red cable) into the end of the Universal Drive Adapter.
2) Plug the AC Power Adapter into a standard outlet, plug the power adapter into the other end of the AC cord, the 4 pin connector into yellow, black and red plug adapter, and then the plug adapter into the back of the SATA hard drive - it is keyed to only go in one direction. Note that there is an inline power switch on the power cord - make sure it's turned on.
3) Plug the other end of the red SATA cable into the back of your hard drive. It is keyed to plug in the correct direction.
4) Finally, plug the USB connection into your computer. The drive should mount on your desktop, ready to copy data onto or off of. This will take up to 30 seconds.
Also, I could not get it to work on a USB hub or extended USB cable. It only worked when connected directly to a clean USB port on the computer itself (front port on an HP 180t).
As soon as I followed the instructions to the letter and connected it to the port directly on the computer, it worked fine.
I plan on swapping hard drives around with it for storage, so I'll see how it works over the long run. Otherwise, I'm a happy camper.
This thing is utterly useless.
I have a personal home studio for composing and producing music with several PCs dedicated running sampler applications (yeah, an expensive hobby). They're old Pentium 4 PCs built specifically for this purpose (running as slave samplers controlled via MIDI), and a primary workstation (also P4) running Windows XP Pro also, specifically dedicated for running multi-track recording (all machines completely detached from those filthy apps that abound the Internet) with solid pristine stock installs. When I built them I purchased them nearly simultaneously so they all have the same Hard Disk IDE device: MAXTOR DiamondMax Plus 9, 80GB ATA 133 HDD.
I purchased this device because at this point, I've poured a lot of money and time configuring these systems. If they crash (and that -has- happened to me in the past), I'm going to be in deep s***. So, I figured it would be wise to get one of these puppies so I can create raw clone images from these disks using "dcfldd" (I'm a Computer Engineer) and have the systems back up in a jiffy in case of a disaster.
Well, I cannot use this device to connect to any other computer system in my household:
* I have a Linux machine running Debian 6.x: The device (Hard disk) is not listed even as unmounted device when "df -hk" is entered as a command (I don't even want to mount it, I just want to _clone_ the damn thing in case of hard disk corruption). Rebooting with device attached does not work.
* I have a MacBook Pro with i7 quad core with OS X (Yosemite) 10.10.5: Again, the device neither mounts, nor is it physically listed using "diskutil list" manually at the command line/terminal. Rebooting with device attached does not work. Sometimes after reboot, OSX would stay on the 'gray screen' hung up until I would unplug the disk, at which point it would proceed to boot up correctly.
* I have Windows 8, plugging it in, does not show up. Opening Computer Administration tools does not show the device. In fact, none of my disks would show up until I unplugged the device, where it would then would allow information about my local disks to be displayed.
The device _has_ worked for me in the past to clone my old MacBook's Pro hard disk to install a new Hybrid HDD+SD prior to upgrading to Yosemite by cloning it. That worked perfectly, but this has been the only success I've had with it.
I don't understand what's so difficult about interfacing with very common, well established, standardized IDE technology. It's not supposed to selectively work with "this drive" and not "that drive". These are common drives from popular vendors. It's MAXTOR, for f***'s sake!
It's very disappointing. If it could work as advertised, this little gadget would be the best thing ever!
Bottom line: While it may work for some, it was utter garbage for me.
UPDATE (Jan 1, 2013): After 1 month the unit just stopped working and I've had to return it. The USB connection in the main unit seemed to have had a bad soldering job, if you pushed on the USB cable just right it would work for a few minutes until your hand got sore. If they just did a bit better quality control this would be an amazing product.
I plugged the old HD into the new MacBook Pro and although the device lit up (which according to the instructions means it's getting power from the computer), the MacBook didn't see it. I tried reconnecting and it still didn't work. Finally I went to the instructions. They're not the best and even give the impression that the device doesn't work with laptops (it does, at least for me). I decided to connect the power supply to the HD. Bam! The MacBook could see it immediately. I have not gotten any farther than that.
One complaint: the power cable is already built into the bridge and if you are going to use the power supply you need to plug it into the free end of the bridge's cable. That has four metal prongs and when I tried to connect the power cable several bent, making it impossible to connect (fortunately I did not try to force it). I had to move them back in place and make two more attempts before success. I suspect this wasn't very good for the prongs and will contact the manufacturer to see if they'll provide a new cable.
I gave it a 5 despite the above issue because that's a minor, correctable issue and overall I'm very impressed with the device.
When I first plugged in the Universal Drive Adapter (to an IDE drive) and plugged in to a Windows 7 desktop computer, the drive quickly appeared on the Devices list in Control Panel, but would not display on the list of drives (under "Computer") so that files could be written or copied. No messages came up and I was at a loss on how to view the drive contents. I then tried it with a Windows laptop. Same result.
When I connected the UDA/IDE drive to a MacBook, it discovered the drive AND told me the hard drive needed to be formatted. I formatted the drive (MS_DOS FAT), and that resulted in a useable drive back on the Windows computer. Now everything works great, with the old IDE drive perfectly functioning as an expansion of my storage space.
