internal to external HDD not recognized

I threw away a old Toshiba satellite and want to convert the HDD to external (it has Linux mint on it) I want to format it as a win 10 storage drive but it doesn’t recognize when I go to management all the menus are grey. I can’t rename it either. I’m currently on a Lenovo laptop g51.


Since you're using a converter to connect your HDD to your laptop, we suggest contacting the device manufacturer of either the converter or the laptop to get proper assistance on connecting the HDD using a converter.
