    Seagate Mirra Access Issues

    I have a 500G Seagate Mirra Personal BAck Up Server that I stopped using long time ago. I want to extract the files out of it and port them to my cloud back up. I took the IDE hard drive out of the box and connected it to my laptop using a Unitek Y-3324 Converter. When I connect the IDE to the laptop via USB, I get the message about "Inserting a CD in the USB Drive".

    I changed the IDE drive name to Z and rebooted my laptop while the hard drive is connected. These steps did not solve my issues. Any other suggestions?
