Laptop doesn't recognize SSD w/USB

Had a SSD-120G in my HP laptop than now won’t boot up. Pulled it out and bought a SATA to USB cable. Have tried connecting it to (2) different laptops - neither recognizes the SSD…nor does the Sandisk Desktop, device manager, or disk mgt sections. Need to get key files off this drive. Any suggestions?

Except for Windows system files, Does the SSD contain your personal files? If there is no any your personal data, just replace SSD to another SSD, and make a fresh install.
