I am having the exact same problem. I just got a new computer with
Vista Ultimate and I wanted to transfer my music from my old drive so
I bought an IDE to USB connector. WHen I plug it in nothing happens.
The hard drive does appear in device manager but it marks it as
unreadable. I have changed the jumpers to the correct alignment (which
might be your problem sjb29, the jumpers need to be set to Master). I
have no idea what to do.

first of all you have to check if your device is properly recognized by
Vista. Check out this in device manager.
if all options are good (hardvare is recognized and you don't have got any
"!" or "?" then you can try to initialize hard drive by Start -> Run (or
Windows + R) and type:
%SystemRoot%\system32\compmgmt.msc /s

When you come in you have to find "disk management" and try to right click
and "initialize disk".

Options described may have different names because I translated from my
language.
