hello guys
i gotta get some data from an old external hdd of mine it s a toshiba stor e partner and i kinda have some problems with it
I get the code 45 when i m connecting it to my pc i think my drivers are too old but from what i know it should have it s own integrated driver for any kind of pc .
i can t access it anyway.

so the thing is it appears in this pc but i can't see it in disk management but i can see it listed in device' s manager at the disk drives section but as a "usb mass storage" not an actual disk.

i tried reformatting the disk & changing the letter for the drive & I uninstalled the device and restarted the pc in order to let windows install the required driver and the most updated one& I updated the usb root hub and usb mass storage drivers and it still didn t work& tried sfc /scannow and chkdsk cmd commands still nothing .

this are my full specs:
asrock 970 pro3 r2.0
fx 8320 black edition 4.5 ghz
16 gb ram 1600 mhz
one seagate barracuda 1 tb 7200 rpm
gtx 750 ti 2gb
Windows 10 Pro with latest update
