Obviously you don't want to format it, but that's not an encouraging sign. You may be able to run some sort of data recovery software.

How vital is this data? And have you got it backed up somewhere safe?

Ya, very important stuff there. A good part wasnt backed up. Really bad timing.

I would try something like Recuva. I'm not sure if it will work in this case. If you end up sending it out to a date recovery facility, it will cost you. I don't know how much, but expect hundreds, at least.

Yup. I downloaded recovery software. I could even see some of my videos in the preview function.

Im gonna be out a couple hundred to recover everything and replace the drive. But at least connecting the drive to the motherboard will make the whole thing go much faster.

Thanks to the both of you for your help.
