I upgraded my notebook to SSD this morning, and figured I would use the removed internal drive as an external drive in an Inateck 2011 enclosure. But Windows 7 won't recognize it. It sees the enclosure in Device Manager, and the blue light on the enclosure lights up to indicate that it is getting power, but it will not recognize the drive.

The removed drive is a Seagate 500GB 2.5" Hybrid SSHD. The drive itself is fine and the connection to the enclosure is secure. Is there a setting I might be missing?
