Yes. The case doesn't care what size the drive is. The computer is just asking for the USB driver for the case. Check the WD site for the driver for the model of MyBook that you have. That should cover it.

How do i use SATA to recover my data from my WD 500 gb mybook? you see my power source is working at all.


You dismantle the case and extract the hard disk. Then you take that disk and you put it in a desktop pc (you will need a SATA dat cable, a SATA power cable and 4 small screws tu secure the disk inside. Once it's installed just start the pc and open My Computer - the disk will be there, copy from it whatever you want.
