I don't have the funds to go to a Computer Service ... so, I am hoping someone can help!

I am a novice ...

On my old computer I had my data stored on a dockable drive when the motherboard fried! I removed the dockable drive (Western Digital) and would like to install it to my new computer (without reformatting, thus losing all my data)! When I installed it the new computer does not recognize it.

Any help/knowledge would be appreciated,

I'm assuming that this drive is internal, correct? OK, make sure that (obvious I know...) the 4-PIN molex power is connected to the Hard Disk, and is this SATA or IDE/ATA? Also, what is the Model # of the card?

Thanks,
