Trying to recover data from Conner CP341 HDD i took from an old Compaq Portable III.
The data is important enough to go through the effort of recovering it, and i would like to do this myself (rather than pay for a service to attempt it if at all possible).
I purchased a IDE to USB device and have tested it on an old Maxtor drive to confirm that it works. A drive letter was assigned to the drive and i could browse the drive via Windows Explorer.
I plugged the Conner CP341 into it and it says 'no drive found' in the software that came with the device, and no drive is displayed in Windows Explorer. I tried opening 'Disk Management' and i get a message saying the drive needs to be initialised and gives me an option for GPT or MBR. I selected MBR and got an 'Incorrect function' error box. I tried GPT but got the same result.
I have access to both Linux (Ubuntu 18.04) OS and Windows 10 OS. What are the next steps i can take to recover the important data from this old drive?
