Question about Sabrent (USB-2535) (USB2535) IDE Controller
Hi, here's what happens:
sort of same issues. documentation is feeble. hd powers up. red light is on.
but the new pc doesn't recognize the drive and, obviously doesn't assign a
drive letter to it.
i tried reversing the cable, changing the hard drive, using different usb port,
re-booting. still doesn't see the drive.
1. jumper settings are correct
2 i use vista, not win 2000 or xp
2 harddrive is old, from old computer
vista doesn't have 'my computer'
i can find manage disk management
can't right click becausse the drive isn't there
how do i change the hdd settings from dynamic to basic if i can't see the drive?
answers to your questions":
1. i'm running windows vista home
2 size of drive... it's old and probably fat(32) under 1g
3 i cycled through the settings
j8 jumper settings
slave, master, & single
no settings work
4. yes i heard the drive spin up
5 the led is red, not green
thx again for your efforts
There shouldn't be any problem accessing FAT32 drives of that size.
Check your disk management (right-click "my computer", hit "manage" and then click on the "disk management")
It should tell you what kind of formatting the disk is, and what the drive-letter is.
If it shows as being FAT32, then you're fine. If it doesn't, the FAT has been corrupted and may require a disk rescue or some kind of disk fixing utility.
Assuming it shows the partition as healthy and FAT32, but it doesn't have a drive-letter, right-click on it and "change driveletter". Pick a letter and hit OK. It should now show up!

Well, I've got the same product and fugured that 2.5" drives work
OK with it only if 40 to 44 pin adapter with power connector used.
The 44 pin connector built into USB-2535 controller is useless.
Also connection steps should be followed meticulously:
Step 1: Connect USB-2535 adapter to a HD (3.5 or 2.5 with 40/44 pin adapter) -red LED will be "ON"
Step 2: Connect low side of the power supply to HD.
Step 3: Plug power cord into el. outlet.
Computer will see your HD as USB Mass Storage Device.
