Default help! System volume information? format?

hey guys.
I have a problem... I am using a portable hdd.
and theres a problem- all of a sudden when I connect it to the usb, it asks me to format the drive. There are files on the drive. My guess is- it is because I deleted the "system volume information" folder via the hard disk itself, and not from windows. so now, I can't read the drive.
What can I do, to extract those files for safe keeping? PLS help

a fairly fail safe way is to try and put it IN a pc by removing the hdd from the case and installing it
