I have a My Book 2T (about 6years old) that the plug connector broke on our move. I bought a new 3T hoping I could put the 2T in the 3T case and hopefully save everything from the 2T. It fits and all but when I plug it to my USB is not reading it, neither on iMac or macbook
Any idea why is not reading it and what could I do to save my data from my 2T My Book?
All help appreciated!
ETA… the power plug on both are different. Not sure if the 3T cable doesn’t support the 2T HD. I’m brainstorming to see how I can make this work to save my data from 2T My Book.
What a nightmare! It all sounds so confusing.
What if I buy the part of the board that broke and install it? Will that work?
and how Linux help if the power cable connector is what broke?
The data is all there. It was working perfectly till the power part inside the hard drive snapped during our move.
