Most of the other guides confused me more than help, since I got one of the earlier models that differed from them. Are you clever enough? The cheap chassis are usually USB types with 1 cable for power and another for file transfer , and I would not buy anything costly for this kind of hack job. Hi Sigg3, I mounted the drive in the Rocketfish enclosure… and … still have the clicking sound, although the power up sounds cleaner. With your flat-head screwdriver remove the rubber band that runs around the chassis edges. After the check finished, the drive restarted and never reappeared. I was fortunate enough to remove all of my data before the proverbial shit hit the fan, and with no risk of losing data, I just want to know if the drive itself is reliable.
