Recurring SATA drive issues

been having this problem lately that whenever I remove a drive from a PC and then reconnect it to the new PC, I am unable to access the drive. Drive becomes RAW with 0/0 bytes ( and I am being told to reformat). on the drives that worked fine before, putting them back in the original PC worked and then I just backed up data to another PC on the network (thumb drives now banned at my company). if the drive was yanked due to a bad boot sector, I am SOL. is this an inherant SATA drive issue or a Windows fuck up. I googeld for 3 months and tried many different kindsof software and got nothing that could help. I end up reformatting the drives and then they work fine. what the fuck is going on here with today's technology?
software tried:
test disk
Easy recovery
find and mount
Easus Data recovery
Partition table doctor

none work, had one of these recover a lot of things after 36 hours...I backed it up and then found the search burned out the drive...it soon started making the dreaded noise of a dying drive. the data I backed up was useless though. could not do anything with it as the extensions were random and everything in one folder.

Do a complete shutdown prior to removal. I have seen this plenty of times when removing it live or even sleep or hibernate.

By that, I guess you are shutting it down? If so, it sounds like the controller. Go to your chipset manufacturer and download the latest chipset drivers. If your computer is mainstream then go to the mainstream (like Dell, HP, etc) and see if there is an updated chipset driver and BIOS flash. Start with that.
What is the brand of portable drive?

to me this sounds that we have an issue with the SATA drive "marrying" itself to the MoBo. and that it will only been read when returned to the original PC.
I have a BartPE disk now that I use to avoid/get around some issues. it is like the most important tools in my 100 disk "toolbox".

Is there a disk encryption option that is turned on?
