Windows 7: Rescued Bitlocker drive showing as unallocated!

Windows 7 Ultimate 64
Rescued Bitlocker drive showing as unallocated!

Hi all,
Recently my WD USB 3.0 3TB Mybook port collapsed and I had to open it up and rescue the drive. I put it into an Astone USB 3.0 3TB supported enclosure and plugged it into my USB. It didn't detect naturally in windows 7 so I went into the partition manager and it asked did a master boot record on it as it was showing as unallocated space. Now it has split into 2 partitions for some reason, 1 is 2048GB and the other 746.52GB both unallocated. Can someone please tell me what I can do do return my data and drive back to normal? It was originally encrypted with Bitlocker and I do have the password too. Please please help me!
