Do you have in an enclosure now and have you tried to access it? It is likely just an issue of the format of the drive as a result of its prior use. In Windows, go to Control Panel/Admin Tools/Computer Management/Disk Management. There you locate the drive in question and then convert to a MBR type volume. Format as desired and enjoy! Good luck!!!

It does not show up in Disk Management. It only shows up in Device Manager/disk drives. I need to find a way to "unlock" it as the case maker stated, hence my request. But thanks for the try!
