Pro-tip, the cheapo USB adapters can't power 2.5" drives all by themselves correctly most of the times.
You'll just hear a click and the drive will seem dead. Instead it's just a power issue

Just get a 2.5->3.5 converted with a seperate Molex connector for power and everything will be fine.
Always did that and every drive which didn't want to work when directly connected to the USB adapter did indeed work when supplied with separate power
