Hard drive question - 11/9/2012 3:39:30 PM

So my desktop died. Not sure what happened to it but I am almost sure it’s the mother board. It’s a Dell studio. I am not real smart with computers. I know just enough to be dangerous. I wanted to save the data on the hard drive from the desktop so I went out and got a I/O Magic USB Hard Drive Enclosure to use with my laptop to try to recover my data. It seems there are 2 hard drives in the desktop. I put the 1st one in the enclosure and my laptop seen it but said there was nothing on it. I put the second one in and it sees it, gave it a drive of G but then said I need to format it. I am guessing this will wipe it clean and I will lose everything. What do I do next? HELP

If it asking to format then your laptop recognizing the hard disk, try to plug it directly to another PC using the SATA/IDE.
