    Just removed my old Maxtor serial ATA hard drive from my dead Imac and tried connecting via a USB adaptor to retrieve all the data.
    All connected simply but is not showing up as a USB devise- drive?
    Does anyone have any experience connecting in this way? thanks for any help

    Where does the drive get power from?

    It's a 3.5" drive, isn't it?
