EISA Configuration

Specs: Windows Vista Home Premium 32
I had to reinstall Vista onto my computer. Before doing so, I removed an after market, internal Maxtor hard drive. After the reinstall, I replaced the Maxtor drive, however, now I cannot access it via Windows Explorer. It appears with limited information in Device Manager and Disk/Computer Manager. In the latter, it shows no volume number and no file system type. It does say "Healthy EISA Configuration." Can you please help access and save the data from this drive? Any help would be much appreciated.

Windows Vista® Home Premium AMD Athlon™ X2 Dual-Core Processor 4800+ (2 x 512KB L2 cache, 2.4GHz), 3GB (1/1/512/512) DDR2 SDRAM, 320GB SATA hard drive, Super-Multi drive (DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD-RAM), 9-in-1 card reader, ATI Radeon™ X1250 graphics, gigabit LAN, V.92 modem

Here are some file recovery porgrams that you can try:

PC Inspector (freeware)

Zero assumption Recovery
The demo is limited
It will only recover 'up to' four folders per run
But you can make multiple runs

You may just need to take ownership of the files/folders. There are many hits in Google on that topic.
