Question about Apple Computer 1TB Western Digital My Book for Mac USB 2.0 External for Mac TX408VC/A Hard Drive
The drives in these units are pretty standard SATA or PATA drives.
Personally, to retrieve data in these situations, since it's the USB converter board that is likely damaged, I open up the box and take out the drive, and put it into a PC that's running MACDrive (software that lets a PC use a MAC formatted drive)
You may however simply be able to get another external drive enclosure (about $20 USD such as THESE) and put the drive into it and be up and running again on the MAC with the old drive in the new enclosure.
