Western Digital external drive plugged directly to motherboard issue.

WD external drive power circuit board failed, dissasembled unit and plugged drive directly into computer, the computer recognizes the drive is there but won't let me assign a drive letter without formatting it, I have a lot if info on the drive but I'm afraid if I format the disc I will lose all of my data. Right now it is RAW and says I have no data on the drive. If I format to NSTF will I lose everything or will it now show what I have on it?
