I am trying to clone my old HDD over to a new HDD SDD hybrid. I am connecting it to the old computer through a SATA to USB cable, but the drive is not detected by the computer. The drive is powered, and gets pretty damn hot, but the computer does not recognize the drive in any way-nothing happens.
If it's a desktop, just connected to an internal connection.
What model of adapter did you get? Does it find the drive if you hook it up while booted to Windows? Are you using a USB 3 port? Try a USB 2 port if you are.
It's on a laptop. I've tried two different adapters, one is 3.0 and the other 2.0 they both have different power adapters. Nothing happens what so ever when i connect it. The drive is powered and spins, but as far as my computer is concerned it doesn't exist.
