Driver for SATA drive used in IDE system.

  coppens1 18:28 25 May 2018

I purchased a Hard Disk Drive 7+15 Pin SATA to USB 2.0 Adapter, but it doesn't work with my Dell Desktop (IDE) which does not have internet access.

Since the item works with my Dell Inspiron Laptop and my HP Netbook, I think the problem is the lack of a driver for the item.

When I connect the device ( with my 320GB SATA hard drive attached) to a USB port in my computer, I get the message "Found New Hardware MTP Device". But nothing happens and the device never connects. I believe it is searching for a driver that is not on my computer. Would you please help?
