It looks like such devices are a little notorious  but can be
with using tweaks under /etc/modprobe.d/ 
Thanks for the advice and info.
It's all a bit beyond me at this stage of proceedings, I'll have to
spend some time trying come up to understand what it all means.
What kind of enclosure is it in? Can you remove the drive and try it
If you're lukcy it may be a SATA drive within in which case you might be
able to install it into your computer.
But check cables and connectors for loose or damaged fit. Also check, if
you can, that internally its connection in snug/OK.
