    10 pro 64 clean install

    Hi ... I try searching Google but I don't see that model anywhere, are you sure it's the correct model? Where did you get it from?

    Windows XP, 7, 8.1, 10, Knoppix [Debian] linux

    Do you mean SOHW-1653S?

    This is 11 year old hardware which uses an IDE (ATAPI) controller.

    Why are you requesting a driver? What is going wrong with this drive?

    If it does not work using the bundled Windows 10 drivers, you may be out of luck as the firmware could be incompatible with modern versions of Windows.

    Does it power up when connected? (motor spin briefly, activity LED flash)

    Have you used it successfully on an older computer?

    Is yours the SOHW-1653SX external drive? This is an 11 year old product, but a driver should only be required for Windows 98 - everything higher uses the Windows built-in USB and mass-storage drivers.

    Win10 Home and Pro, Win10 Insider Preview, Win7 Home, Linux Mint

    I have a similar case with a drive from a computer I junked, seems to work fine with WinXP and newer systems. I probably would have issues with WinVista, Win2000 and older. And forget DOS, maybe no drivers for it.
