WDBACX7500ABK My Passport Essential SE 750GB


does anybody know which HDD is in the internal of WDBACX7500ABK My Passport Essential SE 750GB.

Is it a 9,5mm or a 12,5mm HDD?

Has the HDD the controller on the HDD or is it a normal usable SATA HDD?


Hi there,

Well, there’s no way to determine if the internal drive is a WD Scorpio Blue Or Black or maybe AV. It should be one of those. The internal drive is 9.5mm.  The hard drive does not have a normal SATA interface. It has like proprietary interface and/or controller, which BTW makes it difficult to recover the drive’s data on your own.

Hope it helps :slight_smile:
