I'm trying to connect a Windows 8 hard drive to a Windows 7 computer so I can get at my files. I've tried using a USB to IDE/SATA cable adapter, but it won't read it. It will read a Vista drive though. Is there another adapter that will work with Windows 8, or will it only work if both OS are Windows 8?

It should be able to see the drive, gettin at your data would likely require admin accesss to take ownership of the files/directories.

What happened when you connected the drive?
