For your info:  RAW Hard Drive - http://html5.litten.com/how-to-fix-external-disk-drive-suddenly-became-raw/ .


Above is not a suggestion to try anything, just information presented as information.


For similar situation, you might take a look at suggestions by JohnC at https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/636880/view-external-hdd/? .

Seen/had that kind of problem in the past and the only way i know how to fix the hdd is this way.




As  for getting to the data to backup before you go their as pointed out by JohnC it seems the trick is Testdisk for Windows or something like.
