I'm new here to Bleeping Computer. I've solved many computer problems by viewing forums by others so I figured it's about time to make an account and ask for help with my own problems.

The issue at hand: I have a Seagate Barracuda 3.5'' HDD that was cased inside an NAS which no longer works. I removed the HDD and bought an eSATA to SATA adapter so that I could pull my information off of the NAS HDD using the eSATA port on the back of my laptop. I cannot access the HDD and feel pretty newbie but apparently I don't know what I'm doing. Appreciate the help.

Can you right click on My Computer and go to Manage then go to Storage and Disk Management and see if the drive appears there?

The only options are under Disk 0. There is a row for Disk 1 but it says no media available.

This is an internal HDD, 3.5'' Seagate Barracuda. How would I power this externally?
