I have dead SATA hard drive, I am able to connect to a USB cable converter. it shows up in my device manager but i do not see data the way you see it when you connect a external hard drive. Please help

It's dead, you can either send it for a expensive data recovery service, or buy a new one and say farewell to your data.

You can't just plug it through usb and expect it to be recognized like it was normal, it's not that easy.

With a USB-to-SATA converter installed, what your Device Manger is "seeing" is the USB device (the converter), but it is NOT "seeing" the drive on the other side of it. You said the drive is dead, and this just supports your statement.
