Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not sure it works I bought this device yesterday and tried to use it to recover data from a hard drive _SATA) that I believe has crashed. After setting it up according to the instructions, I'm getting a message that Windows does not recognize the USB device. The SATA light on the adapter is green. The USB light is red. Any advice?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Worked perfect. I was able to open an old drive that crashed and retrieve all my pictures and other important files.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mix Results I have used this device with my Windows 8.1 Laptop that says it has USB 3.0 ports. I only used a two sata drives and two or three IDE drives and never had a problem. I tried connecting to my new laptop with Windows 11 and it just crash every time I connect it. I was using IDE CD/DVD drives. My old laptop still works good with it. It still was hit or miss with the DVD drive. Some times I plugged it in and windows didn't recognize it. Then I would unplug it and plug it back in and it would work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worthless on most older / smaller drives I have a stack of older SATA & IDE drives. Most are 500GB or less. Only 2 out of 9 detect (and I've tried verything). BOO HISS - too expensive to NOT WORK..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WHAT A USEFUL DEVICE FOR PC REPAIRERS OR BUILDERS I have always constructed my PCs according to what my requirements are. Over the years I had accumulated a number of old drives that I could not bring myself to throw away. I also spend a fair bit of time removing or fitting hard disk drives to meet particular requirements. I receive 'Custom PC' monthly and last month's issue contained mention of a device that would enable access to data on older IDE HDDs through the USB3 ports on newer PCs (also handling newer SATA drives as well). This adapter from Startech has, at a stroke, removed much of the hassle and fiddle when trying to utilise data from an older HDD on a newer PC. Thank you Startech a long awaited tool for all PC builders and - dare I say 'Nerds'. Great bit of kit that will see a lot of use in the future.
