Recently a user brought an old WD MyPassport 2TB drive to me. It is an external drive and has a double connector (it looks like the one in this video - https://www.blogtechtips.com/2016/10/27/how-to-open-a-western-digital-my-passport-external-hard-drive/
). When I connect it to a windows machine it just makes a grinding noise and does not appear anywhere. The same is true when attaching to a Debian Linux distro. I was going to take it apart as in the video, but when I got it apart I realized it could not be put into my drive bay, which would take any normal drive, but not one with that connector.
Does anyone have any ideas about how to get the data off of this?
