You could just open it up and check.
Have one of my friend's WD My Passport's right in front of me.
Opened it up hoping for a sata drive so I could *hopefully* recover some data off of it.
Opened it up, and instead of the sata part, has just a regular mini-USB port...
Now it's just a matter of how badly he wants his data to pay up the butt for.
