Question Fixing a faulty external drive enclosure?


Jul 11, 2019
So I ordered an external drive on amazon. Didn't work. Tried two drives, two cables etc.
The blue light turned on and the older drive made a whooshing noise indicating it was running.
So it seems like power works but the data connection seemingly wasn't registering.

Called up support. He said it sounded like a faulty something I don't remember and sent a new one which worked perfectly.
Now I am wondering if I could fix the old one! But I haven't come across any repair guides.
Anyone know where I might start? Kind regards :D
