Old laptop HD to pick up with usb adaptor
I bought this cheap usb/HD adaptor cable to back up partitions
from a laptop 30gb PATA. Never used usb before except for camera
image transfers. When I plug this cable with the HD on it into
the known usable usb port nothing shows up. Not auto, not manual.
I try to mount different combos of /dev/sda1,2,3, but nothing.
Do such drives have to be usb-drives?
