    Useful tip if it’s not working, January 21, 2008

    I couldn’t get this device to work under Mac OS X or WindowsXP, gave up and called for a return authorization…but the support person told me this: 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.

    Definitely a “function over form” rescue device, July 27, 2007

    By Christopher Wanko “-C” (Nutley, NJ USA) –
      

    This review is from: Sabrent USB-DSC5 Serial ATA or IDE 2.5-/3.5-Inch to USB 2.0 Cable Converter Adapter with Power Supply (Electronics)

    I’m nonplussed at reviews mentioning how it’s being used as a full-time connector for a SATA or IDE drive. It’s clearly not aimed at that market at all. This is a kit designed for rescue/ recovery operations of someone else’s HDD. Case in point: me. I wrecked the partition table of my primary work HDD. All in-situ attempts failed, so I brought the laptop home, mounted the HDD to my SATA cable kit, and ran the excellent TestDisk tool from Christophe Grenier. My partition table recovered, I wrote it to disk and bright the HDD back into the laptop. I’m back up and writing this from the work laptop now (don’t say anything). I would never look at this complex jumble of wires and adapters and think “well, I’ll just hook it up and let it go for a few years”. No, sorry, incorrect application, despite the instruction manual showing you how to do it. This is a stripped-down kit designed to travel with your rescue ops laptop when making a house call, like to Grandma’s PC. I find it’s easier to run virus scanning, defrag, etc when the HDD is controlled by my known-good laptop. I withheld a fifth star because it’s a complex mess of wires. I don’t know how one could make it look elegant and preserve its functionality, but whoever can do it merits the fifth star. Wholly recommended product for rescue operations. -Fred

    Looks like junk, but works GREAT, December 5, 2007

    This is not meant to be a long-term, set it on your desk, solution. Its a quick cable to transfer data off a hard drive or between hard drives for an upgrade. I’ve used this with SATA, IDE and laptop IDE. All worked great. I was able to plug the USB device into either my Windows or Mac computers. Very happy with this product! Its great for cases where a laptop gets destroyed, yet the hard drive is fine. I know someone who spilled water on their laptop, and pretty much fried it. But the hard drive was fine. Using this device I copied the hard drive files to her new computers. I’ve owned devices in the past that can do this, but the 3-in one interface setup is awesome.
