So when I try and use a adapter to clone my hard drive over it says that there is no disk installed. I know that this is incorrect because I replaced my existing hard drive with the new one and it works fine and dandy. I am using the star tech adapter.

It is possible your USB is not suppling enough power for the adapter. Does the adapter have the option for external power? OR a powered USB HUB may work.
