Re: How to remove the casing of a external HDD?
LOL, not it isn't strange. Have you ever taken apart one before? You are using a USB HDD correct? So there is probably a converter that converts the ATA into USB.
I've spoke to some shops that have claimed that taking apart those external HDD have made the drives inoperable, and that they don't have the standard ATA connection on the hard drive. I haven't taken one apart myself.
