Falling Bridges.All external hard drives that you connect to PC through USB comes with bridge board to handle communications between your computer and USB. Most of the time this bridge board that has firewire and thunderbolt inside it fails while drive remains perfectly working. While in some case it may be difficult for you to disassemble hard drive enclosure if it has third-party Kingwin 2.5-inch drive enclosure then you can do it easily. The first thing you need to check is whether the drive is still working? To do it you will need to remove it from its enclosure and connect it with SATA controller of a desktop PC or if possible the spare 2.5 inch bay of a laptop if it has one. If you want to connect it externally, you will need to buy a new enclosure and use it in that.
Connecting it to Desktop Computer.While with most of the third party and other 3.5 inches hard drive enclosures, you will just need to remove a few screws to open the case and after little more effort, you can detach hard drive from it. At worst you may need to remove few rubbers to reveal the screws. If your enclosure is 2.5 inch then you may need to remove glued plastic pieces. If you still feeling it hard, you can search internet or YouTube for instruction in opening it. If no luck, we will advise you to don’t try to open it too hard as it might damage the hard drive inside and get professional help or call us and data recovery dubai service. Only person who has some experience in dealing with such hard drives can do it easily. Once you have removed the enclosure and you will need to attach it will PC.

You can easily find it; connect the cable to it and another side with the drive.
