drive not showing up?

Hi,
I have a toshiba-hard-drive, 320 GB, which i recently took out from my laptop. The problem i am facing; the hard drive is not showing up via computer nor disk management. I hooked up the drive via port from the motherboard but the icon still not showing up.

I want to retrieve my data but i am stuck now. The disk is spinning; and also there are no sound clicking noise coming from the drive.

Any idea?

is the drive shown in the bios?  -if not, there's not much you can do
a suppose you connected the drive to a sata port?

Have you tried using a different SATA cable? Different port on the motherboard?

if it does no t show in the bios - and you need the data, a data recovery service is the only option

With Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange you can choose the Exchange Servers and restore points you’re interested in, and Veeam Explorer will present the contents of those mailbox stores for browsing, searching and exporting.
