I'm attempting to identify and recover any data on a hard drive that will not boot. I'm using a USB2.0 to IDE cable with power made by Cables Unlimited. When I plug the cable into the computer and the hard drive the hard drive turns on, but the computer does not recognize it. I've tried with every USB port on two computers that both support USB 2.0. The hard drive is a Wetsern Digital Caviar 36400 Enhanced IDE hard drive 6GB (old i know).

Also, I have two Sata Drives that I also need to identify and recover any data they may have stored. Are the parameters so specific that the cable I'm using won't work on these two as well?
Thanks for any help.
