Old XP IDE disk drive with family photos

Hi Guys

A problem, my sister has given me an old samsung IDE disk drive from a computer (It the master drive)thats given up the ghost, only problem is its got hundreds of family photos on it and she never did any backups, I desperately want to get the photos off it.

Ive brought an external case, fitted up the drive inside and put it to usb, the drive is showing working and healthy in disk management, and is showng as a primary partition coloured blue not black.

Only problem is its not showing on "my computer" and right clicking disk management only shows ability to delete the volume, I dont appear to be able to assign a drive letter either.

Any ideas guys how we can attempt to recover the pictures off it.
