USB IO stopped working

The usb io stopped working on MY Workbook Essentials. The drive would not come ready in the case.
I took the HD out of the case and hooked it up to a pc with SATA connections, the drive come ready but the pc dose not recognize the hd. Understandably it is a back up drive. None of the download programs can find the drive because they are looking for a usb device. Is there something that I can use to read the drive and download some files?

Thanks, Ron


I have not tried this, but lets see if another user can share some information or tips on this matter.
