Yes, sorry to suggest a screwdriver.
I thought since you were using a USB case, that you had a laptop. It
sounds like you have a desktop. Is that right? Plug in the disk there
via a SATA cable.
Is the "dock" you were talking about something that fits into a desktop
drive bay that you can slide a SATA disk into? That's a nice bit of
hardware to have. I have three 3.5 and two 2.5. I'm always helping
friends and customers rescue data. It means I don't have to fiddle with
cables and screws as much.
