Recovering Data from hard drive of a broken Vista PC on Windows 7 PC

I am trying to recover data from the hard drive of a broken Vista PC. I bought an enclosure and I tried to connect the drive to my Windows 7 PC but I don't see the drive on My Computer. I can see it in the Control Panel though? is there a way to find out if the drive is working fine and also to retrieve the data?

Not sure what you mean that you can see it in control panel. Do you mean under printers and devices?

Try disk management. If you see it there assign it a letter.
