Top customer reviews
However, I connected this to a working hard drive and sparks shot out of the powers supply, and now my 2TB hard drive is fried. Thankfully I didn't have anything important on the drive. But it is a complete waste now, it is not recognized now and does not even spin when connected to a working PC or my old working hdd adapter.
1. The IDE connector is defective. It is too short and the key too narrow. Because of this it can be easily inserted incorrectly. I suspect that this is what happened to many users and led to the reported problems. I have 2 cables like this and they both have the same problem even though they come from different manufacturers and were bought years apart. Both were reported as burning hard drives, but they worked flawlessly for me except when I misinserted the IDE connector. Still I did not burn any HDD.
2. The IDE power connector is missing one contact. I do not know if this is by design or a fabrication defect. In any case it is not a problem because the missing contact is for one of the 2 ground pins and 1 pin is enough.
3.The cables are indeed very short in this model. But sufficient for my needs.
Then I put it away for 4 months not needing it. I just took it out again yesterday, plugged it in, all seemed fine. Then all of a sudden the power supply green light is blinking like the connection is bad, so I played with the wire a bit to see if it was just a positioning thing, apparently it was! I repositioned the wire & it fried. Literally started smoking, sparked in my hand (which hurts BTW), and the snapped in half where it burned itself. Thank god it didn't burn anything else in the house (or me other than the shock). Clearly $8 does NOT buy you a decent adapter. I'll need to buy a legit one next time, and if I can find one that doesn't have a "Made in China" stamp on it, all the better.
PIECE OF ABSOLUTE CRAP. Wish I could return it now just for the principal of it, and the fact that that was a huge waste of $8 & my time trying to make it work yesterday & frying it. Hopefully it didn't fry my hard drive in the process of frying itself, I'll have to wait until I get a new cable before I can test that though.
1) No instructions. I was almost ready to send it back when I finally figured out where to plug in my laptop hard drive in to the cable. It was NOT clear!
2) I saw before I purchased that a number of reviewers had mentioned that the power fried their hard drive. This did NOT happen to me - but I plugged it into power source first - and it did not immediately get hot or smoke as others had reported - so then I plugged it into the hard drive. It took ~ 1hour to transfer my files from the hard drive to another computer. When I went to unplug the power to the laptop hard drive that is part of this cable - it was VERY hot. I definitely would be cautious about leaving it plugged in for more than an hour.
