It is not a new drive.  It uses for 1 year.

There is no info about this drive in the web.

When I connect it internally, the BIOS can't detect it.

USB housing works fine as I can use it in different drives.

No.  Actually, the drive used without problem almost for one year.  A
week ago, I found PC can't be booted up as it can't detect the drive.
So I use USB to see what's wrong.  According to the message, I am not
sure whether it is a drive physical problem.  I just want to get back
the data from the drive.  Any data recovery tools available in Linux
to recover data from a crash drive?
