I know from reading online that the drive is known for its trouble. I got it in January 2007, so the warranty is up. And besides, WD are seriously pissing people off with their less than popular solutions [cited: http://en.wikipedia....ook#Pro_Edition].
My question is this. The case on the drive is closed with no obvious way of opening it. If I was to carefully break it open, what would I find? Is the drive an IDE drive (or SATA, perhaps)? If so, I'd like to do just that and place it into my PC as a standard internal drive. I formatted it NTSC (from FAT32) on the day it arrived, so it's perfectly compatible with my Windows XP.

If anyone knows this particular drive, and can answer my question without dispute, I'd be very grateful!
