One thing it’s possible to remove the data. You will have to find a way to open it up to get to the hard drive. Then get a sata to usb cable and plug it back into your computer and copy all the data off to another external drive.

The only thing is I’m not sure how to open it up so you will have to google it.

This answer is false, inside this drive, there is a WD Green Drive that has that same port soldered directly onto the board, so I wouldn't recommend taking that drive out of the chassis unless you have soldering skills.

You will need to solder a new port onto this drive. These new ports can be bought for $12 here. If you have a local repair shop that does soldering, you can send it into them and they should be able to do this repair. If you're confident in your soldering ability, you could give it a shot as well. I believe you would need to solder down 10 joints and a solder connection on each side of the port to hold it down.

Hi All,

This happened to me recently and none of the comments here really helpful. There is no data connection in the hard drive, mine is 12 pins and 2 pins. However, after googling and YouTubing for sometime, the solution is actually simple, go to the professional (Payam Data Recovery - Brisbane). The guy is really helpful and not trying to cheat your money. They diagnosed it and found my motherboard is broken and has to be replaced. That cost me $50. However, if there is more issue and you got to get them recover your data it will cost you $250-$800. Lucky for me.. I am extremely happy to get my work life back.
