it would be best to put the hard drive in another computer to run the data recovery don't want to install over files you want recovered, tho its not always possible...its preferred.

Does not show capacity, but that drive just to have a windows but one day stop working the drive sounds run smooth no messy noises, the disc 1234 are for the media like memory cards etc.

In the disk management when it shows unreadable shows the icon as usb the name of the drive Samsung.

I do remember when first install the adapter the letter drive for my DVD drive was highlighted but nothing was there after that I disconnect the DVD drive and restart the pc but still not show anything, I thought at first that both were assigned the same drive letter I mean the did drive and the sata drive but not sure.

Also yesterday I try a recovery program and run at fist did not show the sata but manage to run it and only came up with a couple of pictures and hundreds of cab files do you think this files contain my information? Curiously every cab file was 45 MB
