sata external hard drive

HP Recommended

i really need help with a problem i have, i recently found a Maxtor 120gb sata hard drive from my old desktop which has now died, i bought a sata/ide enclosure to hook up to my pavillion dv7-1130ea notebook, but the hard drive is not recognised, i have updated as much as i can thru the hp website, the hard drive starts up, i can hear it and feel it vibrate, so maybe its a software issue. my laptop uses vista 64 bit, any help would be fantastic
