Default USB to IDE Cable Hard drive help.

Hello all, I have an R-Driver USB to IDE cable, And when I try to plug my Hard drive into it, it says mass storage device detected, then after 20 or so seconds it says "there was a problem installing your new hardware" How to I get my computer to read this drive? I have tried it on another hard drive from my other comp and it wont work with it either, both hard drives are good I know for a fact. Also the driver cd says I do not need to install a driver for win xp.. Thanks


A

Check the drive jumper settings? Is it set to slave or master?
