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?

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
