Advertisements The plastic broke off of the hard drive itself, right where the SATA data cable inserts. It made it so the SATA data cable could easily slip off. If you look at the picture in post #116, it’s right where the SATA connector inserts into the hard drive. Look south of the connection and you’ll see a tiny triangle of plastic missing. thanks about not putting in other drives. I think I’d have to be hard pressed to ever open the enclosure again now that it’s working.
