So my 1tb mybook fell off my desk, the cord caught it and it didn’t hit the ground. The fall dislodged the usb input which came off of the circuit board when I removed the usb cord. Called customer support, complete waste of time. Did some googling which led to me opening it up, removing the sata drive, and putting it in a universal powered enclosure.
Problem is when I hook it up it’s briefly recognized as a new devie, I can hear it spin, but it doesn’t show up on my computer. I’ve tried it on multiple computers and I’ve taken it in to a couple local IT help desks (may be worth noting when i took it in it wasn’t in a case) . One guy told me all my data was corupted, the other told me he could save everything if I sent it in for an evaluation.
Any ideas what the **bleep** is going on here?
