1 out of 5 eggs Didn't work with 3.5" WD SATA drive 05/29/2013

This review is from: SABRENT USB-STP3 USB 2.0 to SATA 1.8"/2.5"/3.5"/5.25"/SSD Hard Drive & CD/DVD-RW Adapter

Pros: none

Cons: Sabrent claims this works without any drivers but I dispute this. While my BIOS and device manager recognized a 3.5" Western Digital SATA drive, I could not, even after following manufacturer's directions, get the drive to appear in My Computer on either a Windows 7 or Windows 8 computer. I believe this is due to a SATA mode incompatibility but changing the mode from AHIC to IDE in BIOS didn't do anything. Manufacturer needs to make a driver or additional software for this.
