Did you check to see if the jumper on the hard drive...is in tune with what the enclosure wants?

When I had enclosures, they all wanted the jumper set to Slave, while a boot drive normally has the jumper set to Master or C/S.

Go to Disk Management, right click on the drive, choose "Change Drive Letter And Paths", then give it a drive letter.

Right click on Start> Explore. Click on the external hdd and it's contents will show in the right portion of the screen. You can click and drag files from there to the C: drive and drop them there. When you drag the file down the the options you will see them hight light in blue, drag the file down till the C: drive is high light, and drop the file there.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
