Does the hard drive work out of the enclosure? Have you tryed plugging into other usb ports? Normally a cable select or master jumper setting will work in an external.

Try updating the USB driver. What OS are you using? Make sure Windows Updates are current and SP2 is installed

Can you try it on another pc? Some of these drives need software to make them work properly - is it a new drive? Any lights that should come on when plugged in coming on? Any fan or hdd noise?

For the USB caddy that we use at work we've got to change the jumper settings before giving up on the drive. Try it with it set as Master, then as Slave, then as Cable Select. If it still doesn't work, try it on another computer.

It depends on the adapter (caddy) and the drive - we've found it easier just to try all 3 different jumper settings when trying to access the drive.
