From the Manufacturer
The EZ-Connect (Model USI-2535) is your portable, compact, and lightweight Hi-Speed USB 2.0 to SATA/IDE Adapter that lets you easily attach an external SATA or IDE drive and instantly access the drive from your PC through the USB port. The EZ-Connect adapter can support either SATA (hard drive or SSD) or IDE hard drive in 2.5” or 3.5” form factors of up to 3TB disk size. The Hi-Speed USB interface offers plug-and-play capabilities with bandwidth of up to 480Mbps.
Connecting the drive is simple and easy. The EZ-Connect adapter has a 3-in-1 drive connector with a 3.5” IDE connector on one side and a 2.5” IDE connector on the other side for attaching IDE drives, and a SATA connector in front to attach the SATA data cable and the 2.5”/3.5” SATA drive. (Note: You can only attach one drive at a time.) External AC/DC power adapter and SATA power connector are included to supply power to the hard drive. Then simply plug the USB cable into your computer and the drive is automatically recognized. No driver installation needed. The EZ-Connect adapter also comes with a built-in One Touch Backup (OTB) button feature for backing up your files instantly. Just plug the EZ-Connect adapter to your computer and press the OTB button to automatically run the EZ-Connect backup software program.

For IDE drives, the drive's jumpers MUST be set to "MASTER" (not cable select), UNLESS the brand is Western Digital, in which case the jumpers must be set to "SINGLE" (i.e. remove all jumpers). Sure enough, it worked after that! Hope this helps someone else.
****Update 1/30/2013. I finally upgraded to Win7 and this was not recognizing my SATA drive. I emailed customer support and they said might be a defective drive.
I went and purchased a ANKER Uspeed usb 3.0 to SATA or SSD....it recognized my drive right away.
I would no longer buy the Kingwin......Go with the Anker (although it does not work with IDE drives
Bottom line 1 drive wouldn't work, quite possibly dead like the second drive that I know is now unable to be read by my computer when plugged in directly. Out of 3 drives only 1 was able to be read correctly and the other 2 are in questionable condition after using this adapter.
If you like playing Russian Roulette with your HDDs, buy this adapter, otherwise avoid like the plague.
I use it for cloning HD's. Makes it easy to transfer an entire OS/HD combo from a smaller drive of one type to a bigger drive of the same or different type. All cables and external power supply are included. No technical geek should be without this product.
The only thing that can be tricky is making sure any IDE drive used is jumpered properly to be recognized. I found jumpering for 'cable select' to work best. Other reviewers who had problems with drive recognition should recheck this issue.
As discussed by others, the new drive gets partitioned as the old one was, so I rounded up a command-line utility (DiskPart included in WindowsXP/7/etc) and extend the partition out. Note that this utility and others will not allow you to change a partition on a currently active boot drive. Therefore I wouldn't want to immediately install the new drive back into my one-slot machine. Instead the USB cable is used to mount the drive onto a bootable machine, possibly this machine with the old drive reinstalled, then extend the partition. Now we are finally ready to swap in the new larger drive permanently.
Can the USB cable be used to clone the old drive before taking it out? Yes, however two issues. First, is that if your machine's USB port is only 2.0, then its going to take awhile. For instance, I've got that 500G clone-over-2.0 job going right now that is calculated to last 9 hours. For comparison, doing this using the stand-alone configuration would be perhaps 30 minutes tops. The second issue is that this KingWin product did not come with any host application software for doing this over-USB maneuver. Instead I went and pulled a (free) cloning app off the internet. However this was actually necessary for still another reason.Read more ›
