The PCB was bad (the HD never spun up) on my Seagate St33000651AS. Therefore, I bought a replacement board so I can recover the data on the drive.

When I swapped the board, the hard drive powers on, spins up, and starts clicking. Windows 10 makes the "something is connected" sound but the following happens:

  1. My Computer does not show that anything is connected.
  2. Disk Management, shows (Removable D: No Media)
  3. Under Device Manager, Disk Drive shows (Generic MassStorageClass USB Device)
  4. Also under Device Manager Portable Devices show (D:\)
I was wondering if there was a good way to get my data off of this Hard Drive?
