I was much in need of something to plug my old PATA internal drives into, so I could use them with my new computer as backup drives. My laptop crashed due to a pretty powerful virus and I couldn’t even get it to boot up past the ‘Please Wait’ blue screen you see before you get to your desktop. I had no problems connecting and powering up the devices. Plug and play capabilities are only available with certain drives. Update Unrecognized Zip Code. This is a great solution! It saved me a lot of money versus taking it to a ‘pro’ computer repair shop that will charge you an arm and leg to repair and who may delete all your documents anyway.

I know external drives are getting super cheap now, but why spend money when I already have half a dozen old PATA drives lying around? The reviews previously posted on the product are correct.
