So i recently killed my laptop (the screen broke) and i decided to get a new dell inspiron 15 7000 series laptop. I bought one of those adapters to attach to the old hdd and it works, it loads up and says its install Ext. Hdd and the necessary files and could take a couple of minutes but that's as far as it gets. I cant access the hdd as its just names removable disk and when i try to access it says i have to insert disk to drive. The old laptop was a Samsung NP350v5c-902AU. I have a lot of data i would like to access that i cant.
