Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I need a driver for my usb 2.0 to sata and ide hard disk adaptor that i bought from maplins as i have windows vista. Regards, Gareth


Answers :

Hi, Gareth.

I didn't find a driver on the Maplins site nor the Nikkai site. I'd suggest that you contact Maplin to send you another copy of the driver.

What I find odd is that Sata drives are a recent technology, developed many years after Windows 98 was generally no longer in use. So, drivers for that operating system would not have been developed. I'm guessing that the driver you have is corrupted.

Hope this helps.
