The laptop is a toshiba satellite a135-s4427. A few days ago I dont know what happened, but the laptop would not boot up, it kept cycling to the options screen and back to restarting the laptop. I thought the OS had gone bad, so I took out the drive, hooked it up to a sata-usb adapter and plugged it to another computer to get the data off the drive.
When I plug the USB into the other computer, I hear the familiar sound of New device found, and when I display devices, it shows me the drive as a sata to usb drive, but thats it. It doesnt appear in the explore window and in device manger it appears as a device with an exclamation.
So , is there any way I can get the data off this hard drive?
