From what I can discover, that Nikkai has its own power supply. I had a similar experience using a generic IDE-USB adaptor from an older Hitachi external drive. The solution was simple, hopefully it will work for you.

Power on the drive(s) and then plug the USB connector to your Mac. For some reason, connecting everything before powering on did nothing except make the external drive spin.
