It is quite easy, do not worry.
You only need to bought and USB enclosure, here is a link to many products on ebay
then you have to connect your hard drive inside the enclosure and the enclosure to your computer using the usb cable and that's it.
Just be carefull about the enclosure, I guess it is a Hard drive from a desktop, is in it? because some enclosure are for laptop's hard drive.
Also you need to know if your hard drive is SATA or IDE, IDE is the normal gray bus cable with fourty some pins, and the SATA it is a really small cable (I do not use technicims to not confuse you even more).
Also, there are some adapters from IDE/SATA to USB that you can buy in your local computer store (do not go to bestbuy, compusa, ... they only sell external hd), or also get it from ebay.
The only diference between the enclosure and the adapter is that the enclosure looks better :D, and the adapter is just a bunch of cables.

Dear FixYa team,
Thx for your kind offering to me. I already call my friend to help me here. And he seems already found the solution. The problem was comes from USB cable malfuction, and I think it somehow affect the firmware detection. Gladly he can back up it again with another harddisk, just try to baiting it to make the firmware read. Now I'm still waiting for data recovery only. I'm so sorry that I can't use ur helps now, coz I needed it in hurry. Thx

If the HDD is not detecting in the BIOS then It’s seems like to be a firmware issue on this particular series of HDD
for Model: ST3500620AS Firmware: SD15 Barracuda 7200.11 500GBytes
The one & ultimate way is to contact the nearest seagate center in your location to get the data back up & if your drive is under warranty then mostly it will be free of cost. (Not Sure about it)

Every Seagate drive requires a few firmware updates during its lifetime.
Seagate firmware must be up-to-date to ensure that the product will run reliably.
Changing the firmware on a Seagate product to a more updated version will improve the product's performance.
Check the Seagate website often for any update available for your drive.
The firmware can be changed with just a few clicks of your mouse on the Seagate Web page.
Click the "Start" button on the bottom-left corner of the screen.
In the window that pops up, click " My computer " or just "Computer."
Another window will show up with an icon for your hard drive.
Right-click the hard drive icon and press the "Properties" option.
This will tell you what model your hard drive is.
For example, your hard drive might be ST31500341AS.
Open your Web browser. Type in www.seagate.com and press "Enter" on the keyboard.
Wait for the webpage to load.
Enter the word "Firmware" and your model number in the search box on the upper right hand corner of the webpage and press "Enter" on the keyboard.
Using the example from Step 1, type in "Firmware ST31500341AS".
Click on the first link that is returned in the search results.
Locate the firmware update. Double-click the update.
Press the "Download Firmware Update Utility" link to start downloading.
Click yes on any pop-up boxes that you may see.
Open the new firmware file by double clicking the file that you downloaded in Complete the installation by accepting all of the default questions that are asked during the installation process.
Hope this helps
