Yes you can just take the hard drive out of the case, can use it with any other case, you can also just put it inside your computer and connect it to the sata cable :)
Heres a case you could use for your drive... Click Here

try opening it up, screw loose the connection with your usb (the whole component) and then directly plug it into your computer with the plug that goes into harddrive:)

Just tore one apart for a data recovery a couple days ago, just a personal recommendation though, These cases are horribly designed, personally I would rather buy a simple case like a nexstar, then remove the drive and move it to the new case.
I'll leave that decision up to you, but you'll see what I mean once you have this one open.
PS, working from memory,
First pry the to halves of the stand apart, it's just snapped together.
Second remove the three screws from the upper half of the stand
Third remove the two tiny screws from the bottom of the main body of the case.
Now, the FUN part, grab 3 wide flat screwdrivers and 3 long screwdrivers(no matter which kind).
Move along the back of the drive(cabling side) prying the two sides apart along the seam. Leave one of the screwdrivers set in the gap to prevent it from snapping shut,
Do the same with both sides
Now you have a choice, if you're taking my recommendation and bought a new enclosure, put on your shoes and at least one glove.... Grab the top, step into the gap in the back and pull hard.
When you hear the satisfying SNAP and stumble backwards it is open.
If you're still planning on fixing the thing, pry up a bit and look past the actual drive you will see three retainers at the front(wedged edge) use the three long screwdrivers to force the center one forward and to pull the to outside ones toward the back(I'm still missing about 3mm of skin on one finger a week later from trying this method). Keep at it till you get the timing right or decide to try it my way ;)
Once you have it open by either method, remove the HDD LED lead at the bottom of the drive from the drive. Pull the drive out and unscrew the on the corner with the USB(under the rubber stopper).
Now you have access and can saulder away at will.
Hope this helps FixYa, lemme know which method you choose and how it goes.

Your file system on the drive might be corrupt along with all the data on the drive. You can try to download data recovery software or try the drive on a different computer. I hope this helped solve your problem.
