Hehe, yes, I kind of guessed the answer would be something like that.
Oh well, never mind. I bought it off FleaBay and it did say Windows/Mac
but I figured something as basic as a ATA->USB bridge should be OS
agnostic - to be fair it is, as it sees the disk and creates devices for
it, it's just that the USB interface is not standards-compliant.
I fired up the Mandriva Linux Live CD and tried it. Linux found the
disk, created devices for it - then did a USB reset and the devices
Might have a word at work and see if they'll swap it with the one I
borrowed that does work.
