I want to use my external Harddisk from WD intern => result... i can´t see my files


why i can´t use my external WD Harddisk internal? I do not use hardware encryption.

I have already destroyed the housing.

Please help me.

Thank you very much.

You will not be able to recover data that way it will still be encrypted. If it has a standard SATA connector it should connect as an internal but will probably need to be reformatted.

Is there anyway to decrypt the data? The usb-sata bridge board is no longer recognized by windows so I had to take the drive out. Now I am doomed that I can no longer see my files.

You might find a replacement board on Ebay. This explains a bit about the boards  http://community.wd.com/t5/Off-Topic-Discussions/Bridge-Boards/td-p/353839
