f it's not seeing the drive at all, you're probably out of luck. But if
it's just Windows that's not being seen, you could do a repair install of

As far as where to get the adapters, I don't know where they're sold retail.
I get mine from a distributor, and they don't sell to end-users. You'll
probably find them at some of the bigger stores, and they're probably
readily available online as well.
