there is 4 screws on the bottom plate. two under the rear ruber foot. two under the s/n sticker. you can feel for them. after this the bottom plate can be taken off from the front first. then you will see 4 more screws which will release the hard drive assembly. you will find a number of screws holding the can together, but the back of the can just pulls off. be sure to teke the 2 screws out of the button pcb, then everything just slides out. then a SATA drive will be able to remove from the USB/IEEE 1394 adaptor. inside i found a barracuda 7200 rpm:4-dontknoAnyone know how to go about disassembling this external drive?
Help would be appreciated
Thanks in advance
hey Ciara,i was bought a maxtor 500gb hard drive for my birthday, but the usb port just went straight through the case one day with all my pictures and everything inside it!
im trying to take it apart but unfortunately i dont have a screwdriver small enough for the inner casing as yet.
Will my data still be saved in the drive? or because the usb port went straight through will it all be lost?
thanks in advance
