My WD My Book Essentialbook is Not Getting power

I accidentally knocked this sucker off my desktop and the power adapter caught the weight. It was bent a little so I hastily began tryin to pry the case off with hopes of putting the hd in my desktop to recover the info. I haven't been able to make that work so I tried to solder the broken power jack on the case. That didn't get me power either so nOw I'm wondering what I can do to retrieve my data.

First, I'd consider buying another power supply and try that now if it's not more then the enclosures I listed for a desktop harddrive

here is a disassembly video

You likely damaged traces on the board in the enclosure if you tried a new power supply, so your only option now is HDD enclosures

take this drive apart and find out if it's sata or ide

a SATA connection


check your drive(s) in the MyBook enclosure and compare them to those pics

Next, pick your enclosure(note I picked ones I feel are well priced and have good star ratings already, pick your own if you want to)



*note I am NOT a big fan of eBay personally for anything but junk computers with other issues besides mine to get parts from, so that's why i linked to amazon*

change the enclosure and you'll be able to reuse the drive too
