using an IDE to USB 2.0 cable adapter? Because the Hard Drive turns on (so power adapter is functional). The problem is that Hard Drives aren't detected in my computer (which leads me to believe that the IDE to USB 2.0 data connection is what is faulty).

I am hoping to circumvent this problem, by purchasing just this one cable:

It's a cost effective way to troubleshoot. If it does not work then pull out the hard drive and install it in a PC or another enclosure.
