The only case where the connection worked is when I connected it with an IDE hard drive on both Vista and XP. No other connection worked. I noticed a burning smell in the SATA power cord connection area immediately when I connected it with two SATA hard drives to recover files from, so I was out of luck. The BrilliantStore sent me a replacement free of charge, but the power supply adapter does not work. There is no light in the power supply when I connected it unlike the original one, which in turn burned the connection area in SATA hard drive. The power supply actually says "QC PASS", which is ridiculous because if it works, it should turn on the light on the adapter.

This seems to be a very dangerous item that should not be sold due to fire risk. Although the USB adapter worked perfectly, the power brick began smoking, melting, and smelling like burning. Luckily I was standing right next to it when I heard a loud pop and noticed the now deformed brick was smoking. I unplugged it from the wall immediately. I wouldn't have been surprised if it had caught fire were I not there to unplug it.

If you do decide to purchase this product, please, DO NOT LEAVE IT UNATTENDED while it is plugged in.

This product works with about 30 percent of my drives regardless of where the jumpers are set. No documentation with this unit so take care to plug it in correctly. Email to seller not answered. If you want something like this unit, pay a little extra and get a better one.

My laptop died and I wanted to transfer my data to a new computer. Typical situation. This did the trick quickly and cheaply. Worked perfect.
The one thing I will say is that I wasn't sure if the connector would fit my harddrive. I realized that there was some sort of adapter that was on my HP harddrive. I simply just took it off and it fit perfectly.

Bottom Line: Its cheap, and it works. Buy it.

I plugged this cable into my second DVD+/-RW drive, turned on the power, and within seconds smelled smoke. I immediately unplugged it. I found that it was partly my drive that was smelling like smoke. I then tried that DVD+/RW drive with a second set of cables I had, and was using with a hard drive (that cable was a 'name brand': Cables Unlimited USB-2110 USB 2.0 to IDE and SATA Adapter Cable with Power). The DVD-burning drive had previously worked with that set of cables. The drive no longer works at all thanks to this set.

If you value your hardware, do not buy these!

I've bought quite a few of these from Amazon and never had a problem. For those of you saying "I hook it up and nothing happens" that means your drive is probably bad. Same goes for the people who say these only work on 70% of the drives they try. The only time I've had any issue with this device is always because the HDD is too far gone, clicking, or just dead. The AC adapter is flimsy but you normally don't need it, as you can just borrow power from the host computer (if the host is a desktop). I have my own on-site computer repair business and I use these everyday. In fact, I even have an old 250GB SATA hard drive hooked up to my Wii using one of these. Works great on my Mac as well as any version of Windows (98SE, NT4, 2000, XP SP1,SP2,SP3, Vista, 7, 8 Preview). This is worth the 7$.

The USB to Sata/ide cable is great , however the power supply failed the second time I used it which sucked, it had a red light and smelt like a burn. I would have to pay the shipping to exchange it as it did not come with any return label and that is their policy. I guess the price was too good to believe , I am better off just ordering another one as the price was low. I think I will try a different company next time.

Do not buy this. Plugged it in properly and started opening my files when I heard a loud "pop" come from the power adapter box and smelled burning electronics and smoke came out of the box. Immediately I unplugged it and now I only hope my hard drive isn't fried because of this product. Again do not buy!
