Default Trying to transfer files from a HD

My server will not boot up so I am trying to transfer the files from the HD of the server directly to my computer. The HD Is a Western Digital 2500JS. I connected it to an external HD case that connects via USB. When I connect it to my laptop, I do not see it. Any ideas on how to get my files?

It looks like your hard drive died.

I think so too. I am using a recovery software to see if I can at least get the files off of it. That program seems to find the HD.
