Is there any hope for this hard drive?

So I got a new computer for Christmas. Pulled the 2nd hard drive out of the old computer to use as a data drive externally, using a USB/ATA hub. Worked fine for a week or two. Then I must have disconnected it the wrong way.

Now when I try to re-connect it, both computers won’t recognize it via Windows Explorer or My Computer, or Drive Manager. Put it back inside the old computer. The BIOS does recognize it, but when I boot up, no go.

I’m open to ideas of things to try. I would really like to pull some old data off this hard drive.
