USB External swap to internal

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
The external is a 2TB USB Maxell.




Would it be possible to take the drive out of the casing? I assume the extra circuit board for the USB and power plug is just attached via the SATA and power plug on the drive.
Or does maxell actually make a different drive for their externals?

I'm fairly certain that you can simply remove those two screws and slide out the circuit board that is plugged in to the drive. This was how my Cavalry external came apart.

Correct, found a Samsung inside. Thanks
