How can I add an external hard drive to my PC?

I’m trying to add an external hard drive to my PC by inserting an internal drive into a case that connects via USB. However my Windows Vista PC is not recognizing the drive. I set the jumpers to SLAVE on this new external drive. Any ideas?

    Set it to master / cable select. The USB controller is separate to the rest of your motherboard, so the usual slave/master rules dont apply...
