I am trying to recover data from an old Linux that was installed in a computer on an ATA hard drive. I found a ScanLogic Corp. SL11R-IDE IDE Bridge (04ce:0002), an ATA adapter to USB 1.0 like the one in the picture:
and after switching it on, I plugged it into a laptop with Ubuntu 12.04. I am used to the drives being automatically mounted, but this one doesn't show up in /media. After doing a dmesg, all I got is this:
[ 175.531463] usb 2-1.3: new full-speed USB device number 4 using ehci_hcd [ 175.626505] usb 2-1.3: New USB device found, idVendor=04ce, idProduct=0002 [ 175.626510] usb 2-1.3: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=1, SerialNumber=0 [ 175.626515] usb 2-1.3: Product: ScanLogic USBIDE [ 175.626518] usb 2-1.3: Manufacturer: ScanLogic USBIDE [ 175.627314] scsi5 : usb-storage 2-1.3:1.0 [ 176.700616] usb 2-1.3: reset full-speed USB device number 4 using ehci_hcd [ 176.876168] usb 2-1.3: reset full-speed USB device number 4 using ehci_hcd [ 177.051668] usb 2-1.3: reset full-speed USB device number 4 using ehci_hcd [ 177.227343] usb 2-1.3: reset full-speed USB device number 4 using ehci_hcd
I tried plugging in the adapter to the three different USB ports in my laptop (one of them USB 3.0), but got no luck with any of them. I get different devices under, for example:
/dev/bus/usb/002/004, but I don't get any
/dev/sdbN links. The output
blkid -o list -c /dev/null is just the laptop's partitions.
I have tried taking out the jumper, putting it as master and as CS Enabled, but didn't change the result.
If I plug it into a Windows7 laptop, the device is recognised but nothing is mounted. When I plug it into the Windows7 laptop and connect the device to a VMWare Ubuntu 12.04 session running on Windows7, I get the same results as with the Ubuntu laptop -- the
dmesg results as above, but it is not mounted.
