Question about Maxtor OneTouch III Mini Edition 120GB External USB 2.0 Portable 120 GB IDE Hard Drive
You can buy another external housing and then just swap the hard drive itself over to the new housing. The housing only cost in the 30 buck range if not cheaper. If you need to get the data off, you can also buy an EIDE/SATA to USB adapter that will allow the connection between an unhoused hard drive and a computer. CompUSA sells them for around 20-25 bucks.

Feel along the back and bottom side of your Maxtor external hard drive. Depending on the specific model of hard drive you have the unit may have screws or plastic latches inside the case. Pull of the warranty sticker and check to see if the screws are located underneath it if you don't see any screws anywhere else. Pull out the rubber stoppers at the bottom of the external hard drive case and check if the screws are located underneath. Remove the screws if your model of Maxtor external hard drive has them. Insert a thin and flat object such as a flat head screwdriver between the seams of the two sides of the case if there are no visible screws. Run the flat object around the length of the external hard drive case until it hits a plastic latch. Wiggle the object up and down until the latch disengages. Continue sliding the screwdriver along the sides until all the latches are disengaged. Pull the two sides of the Maxtor external hard drive case apart to reveal the actual hard drive enclosure inside. Remove the screws holding the hard drive into its metal cage. Pull the existing hard drive unit out the metal cage and replace it with the new hard drive. Reassemble the unit and plug it back into your computer.
