USB-IDE Adapter will it work in Win8?

Most the on-line stores that sell this adapter mention that the cable works on all systems except Win 8.
If the usb is 2.0 shouldn't it work with Win 8?

I'm trying to remove data from a 3.5" disks from my old XP system and the adapter cable seems to be the most efficient way to do it...me thinks...but if it won't work using Win8, guess I'm up the creek, right? or not?
Wasn't really sure if I should be in this section or Win8...
thanks ahead of time.

    Which one specifically? I have a USB SATA/IDE adapter, and works fine with Win 8.
