Default HD usb connection to laptop

Hello everyone. I've bought an adapter that conects my previous laptop's HD via usb to my new laptop. My new laptop detects the HD without a problem.

THE problem is though that when I open my old HD on my new computer, I can only get into the windows folder and program files folder; it doesn't allow me to get into my "my documents" folder, and that's where my important information finds itself. Since my old HD is mine, I obviously know the password, but it doesn't even give me an option to use it.

I've tried booting my new laptop up using my old HD as primary HD, but that does't work either (it keeps on booting up with the new HD that comes built in it).

I have no idea whatsoever how to take care of this problem. Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance.
