Re: what are the jumper settings when using Philips USB 2...
No Jumper Settings are required for external drives, they are all setup as Slave by default, and if you try to open the case, to take the drive out and change the Jumper Settings, you will invalidate the warranty.

Hi, The drive you are connecting to this USB enclosure can be set up as an auto select, master, or slave drive by changing the jumpers. Suggest to check your USB enclosure manual to see what is required for this device as to the configuration of the drive jumpers. Regards, Rongg
Replace the cable you are currently using with your printer cable and see if it is the cable if that is not the case I would open the case, and check your connections on the hard drive, there is a chance it might have come loose.
You do not need to install a driver for Windows XP and Vista, it is already built in. The CD may however contain optional software for initializing the hard drive the first time, and for making backups later.
Do you know if the hard disk is good? Does it spin up when you turn it on? You can hear and feel it spin up.
If this is not a SATA drive, make sure that the jumper is set correctly. Most enclosures require the drive to be jumpered for Master, sometimes for Single or CS. Check the top of the hard disk for a guide to how to set or remove the jumper.
You might try connecting it to different USB ports, some are faulty.
