    Trying to use old IDE to USB adapter (works fine on Win7)


    I have an IDE to USB adapter which is over ten years old. It works on my Windows 7 laptop but not on my Windows 10 desktop. My Windows 10 desktop shows a drive letter under My Computer for a short time but it doesn't give a volume name or capacity and the drive letter disappears after a short time.

    How can I get information from my Windows 7 laptop to help me get the adapter to work with my Windows 10 desktop? If I go into Device Manager in Windows 7, I see the model number of whatever IDE drive I connect followed by USB but really I think I'm interested in the driver that makes the converter work?

    The converter doesn't have a model number although the PCB has U235 REV.C printed on it. There is an IC chip with CL811USB 0351MHGA6-24 on it and I can find information on the CL811USB controller but nothing indicating that there is a driver for Windows 10. Would it make sense to try to extract the driver being used on Windows 7 and install it on Windows 10?

    Do you have a brand name for your adapter?

    No. It has 'a clever storage' printed on the case but I don't think that's useful!
