Carefully pry out the silver ends with a thin flat bladed screw driver. The ends are snapped onto the middle body section by one-way clips so you will probably break one or more of the retention clips. You are almost guaranteed to make cosmetic damage to the silver painted plastic ends though. You should only open it as a last resort ot get the disk drive out or possibly to salvage the SATA to USB controller board if the drive is dead.

SOURCE: I have an iomega portable hard drive USB 2.0

An external storage-device has four major components:

* the USB cable

* the power-adapter

* the disk-drive inside the enclosure

* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.

One of these components has failed.

Try a different USB cable.

Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer.

Try connecting to a USB port on a different computer.

Take a "multi-meter" and measure both the voltage and amperage output from the AC adapter, and compare with the specifications on the label on the adapter.

Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and then connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if it works at all.

Purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Get the part-number and serial-number from the label on your disk-drive, and access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status", to see if they will replace the device, at minimal cost to you.

There exist commercial "data recovery" services that can try to repair your device, just long-enough to rescue and copy your files. For example, see: https://services.seagate.com/index.aspx?lng=en-US for a "no data - no charge" guarantee.

Once it is connected, it should show up in your My Computer folder as a removeable drive. You use it like your hard drive on your computer to move and copy files to. Just open your hard drive on your computer, select the files you want to copy or move to the new drive and right click on the selection, click on the send to option on the menu and it will be one of the options to send the files to.

Take the hard disk out of that case, put it in another one and plug that in another pc. If it's the same then the disk is dead and all the data on it is lost. Junk it.
