Hi, I succeeded in opening it. I found this link: http://www.computer-aid.com.au/blog/...-35-usb-drive/
You still need a little fantasy but it worked.
After that I hung it in a computer with Sata. Booted with Kubuntu9.04 live, but nothing was recognized. Then I did apt-get install testdisk and apt-get install smbfs to connect to my share. I mounted my networkshare and started testdisk. Testdisk goes looking at the partitiontable and tries to fix it. Worked for me and I also saw filetitles, but when I left testdisk and copied them the were size zero. Then I started testdisk again, let it recover the partition and then uses the files-option. Took some searching but then he finished. Used the copy-command in testdisk and that worked like a charm.
I have got all my files back (photos from one birthday and schoolmusical).
And now I know the casing is broken and not the disk.
Goodluck with your disk.
