    Universal Ide-Sata-adapter on win10. IDE drive not recognized

    I remember once tested ide/sata-hdd-adapter on older pcs. have now two.
    sata-hotswapped working on win10 ultrabook.
    but i cant hear power on ide-drives. have many could check all of them.
    i wonder if i can enter bios with external keyboard. orginal built-i n dead. acer ultrabook swift 5. commented elsewhere. could check with second ultabook. changings in bios needed?
    once had a 2 1/2 sata drive attached. now dead. dont have second one.
    must i hear motor as power is on or only when data are searched? thanks a lot
    forgot to tell i switched from hub to onboard usb-slot. didnt help
    one must know on that device also screen is dead. i am on external devices: screen and KB.
    maybe worth testing docking station. but the only one i have is wrong construction discussed here and on YT. unbelievable designers contact nonworking due to stupidity.
    there is a clever better alternative from Startech?

    Sometimes it helps to hear a hard drive if you put something solid, like a wooden dowel, up against the side or top of it and then put your ear up against the other end.

    got tips from FB-seller of a different adapter. he told maybe security/scanner-issue.
    have found an affordable alternative. dual docking station
    NB: i used an old 2.5 drive as storage and it died.
    bad speculation. better using newest ssd or sticks.

    Using a USB "stick" is a bit like using a paper cone cup. They don't last very long. Use a good, well-known SSD instead.
