I can't open my hard disk with an external case.?

Hi, my laptop is dead, so I want to save my info from it, so I took off the HD from the laptop and put it into external case, but my new pc can't open it. It is showing up in my devices, but I can't open it. I tried it  on 4 other Pcs. The result is the same. Why? :(
