Has anyone been using Slim IDE to SATA frame adapter (in shape of laptop CD-ROM drive) like this one?: New Universal SATA Super Slim 12 7mm 2nd Hard Disk Driver HDD Frame for Laptop | eBay I have bought one and try to use SATA HDD, in Fujitsu-Siemens v3505 CD-ROM compartment, as it is impossible, now, to buy new JAE50 (old IDE port for optical drives in laptops) DVD-RW or Blu-ray. The problem is that when I insert that installation frame, in BIOS there is no device detected, also in Windows there is nothing visible. I do not hear any sound of HDD, should I, or drive is only powered when detected? Is it some BIOS software related issue or hardware problem?
