Default wd hd wd2500js found in the trash

found a tower someone through away. I wish i took pictures and did not.
All plexiglass. salvaged the drive, 2 gig ram and dual video card.
i have a rosewill usb external port (usb to sata or ide). i can not get this drive working and suspect its something im doing wrong. the drive is a sata wd 250gig. the only thing i did is set the jumper to 1 and 2. my question is some of these jumper settings may still need to be configured to work with the usb. any thoughts please.

Hook the drive up directly to see if it's any good. That may be the reason you found it in the trash. . .
