Cant see slave drive data?

I have a win 7 hard drive that would not boot up. So I purchased a USB 2.0 to Sata/ide hard drive adapter in hopes of accessing the drive to copy the users files off of the drive. I see the drive in disk manager and it says that the drive is healthy & encrypted so enter the bitlocker recovery key for the drive, butI get the following error: 'f:\ is not accessible. The parameter is incorrect.

How can I get the data off of this drive? Please help!!!

    Did the hard drive adapter come with a power supply? If the hard disk in question is a 3.5 inch hard drive or a 2.5 inch Velociraptor hard drive then it requires a 12V power supply. USB only provides a few milliamps at 5 volts which is enough to power the controller but not the spindle.

    Make sure that it's actually able to spin up first.
