Broken USB - Recovering data

The USB port broken inside the case.  I opened the case and tried to hook up the hard drive to my macbook via SATA to USB connector and it won't recognize that there is anything on the drive.  Anyone have any idea how to save my stuff?

Re: Broken USB - Recovering data

See the posts by fzabkar or send him a PM he is the only one who understands the chip boards on these drives. I think the drive is hardware encrypted by the bridge board.
