I purchased two of these to use with 2 fully functional iMac G4 IDE hard drives I recovered from older machines. I then connected my drives to them and plugged them into my Windows 8 laptop, no dice. I then tried my Windows 7 notebook...again, no luck. Windows Server 2008 R2 (Same kernel as Windows 7)? Dead drive. With each attempt I used multiple USB ports on each machine with the same results.
Next step was to plug one of the drives into an old Dell notebook and format the drive in NTFS format (the slow way) using an OEM Windows XP install disk. Afterwards, I put the drive back into the enclosure, no luck with the Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 machine, but the Windows 8 notebook acknowledged it fine. I copied some files to it and then plugged it into my Surface RT. No luck there, even in desktop mode.
I then plugged the drive back into my Windows 8 notebook and Windows 8 wouldn't read it either....AGAIN. Ditto with my Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 machine. I maybe thought it was a Windows issue, so I tried both an Ubuntu machine and Macintosh. No luck there either.
Windows Server 2008 R2.....forget it
Windows 8......worked until I plugged it into another machine, then no dice
Ubuntu Linux......no way
Macintosh......don't even ask!
Save yourself the time and effort and just buy yourself a portable hard drive, instead of futzing around with this crap. Too bad there's not a zero star option; I'd have used it on this one.
Oh, and I originally plugged this into a newer windows 7 machine, and it was plug-and-play. Recognized the hardware almost immediately and worked as advertised as far as I could tell.
