Default Hard drive enclosure problem

I recently bought a hard drive enclosure for my 300 gb Ide hard drive although recently I tried to connect it into my pc but windows won't recognise it.

I tried it on several other pcs yet it wasn't found. I took the 300gb HD out of the enclosure and yet it worked when connected directly into the pc. Any ideas?

It's a newlink hard drive btw.

Could you give details about your external hard drive enclosure?

Have you tried setting the hard drive to 'master' in your enclosure?

It's a newlink 3.5"Hdd enclosure.

I tried changing the setting to master but nothing happened.
