I have a 3.5" ide hard disk swapable drive caddy, only problem is that no hard disks are recognised by any PC I put it in, I have tried several PCs & hard disks. Does this caddy need any special drivers to load first?

Are you talking about the slide out drive trays? I used to use those a few years ago and never needed any drivers. You may want to closely inspect your ribbon cable between the drive and tray, that sounds like the most likely reason for it not working.

You are not going to believe this, a friend suggested a good look at the caddy, & screwed to the base was a flat key. So put the key in, lock the drive and all works. Now I feel foolish, just goes to show a good look first can solve many problems, not a word was mentioned in the instructions.
