WD External My Passbook Help

I have a 500GB external My Passbook drive.  Its of the older models, kind of on the fatter side, I cannot for the life of me read the serial nmber on the back cause the letters are too small.  If need be I can take a photo of it and post the picture here.

Anyways Is there a way to pop the case open at all?  The usb connector is shot and actually got pushed inside the external enclosure.  I need some stuff off the drive and wanted to know if possible to get the case open.


If it’s a drive that came with Smartware your data is hardware encrypted so connecting as an internal won’t work. Not all Passports have standard connectors either. Try searching Youtube you may find a video on how to open.
