Just an idea. When you set pass words or any important information write all information in a note book and keep it in a drawer someplace where you will not lose it. When things change write the new ones down and cross out the old ones. I save a lot of head aches that way.

Pushing in the paperclip should unlock it, but if still jammed, may have to wreck drive by pulling off front of drive drawer thing. Maybe try putty knife to push cd down some of that's holding it from opening.

Replace perhaps, but repair is most difficult. The electronics are miniature and it takes special tools to do repairs.

You need updated drivers to get that working. Get OIbit Drive Booster on the internet at IObit.com

Two ways this can go. If you are talking about the entire hard drive pulling it out and plugging the whole drive into another pc. Then you're fine

If you are talking about disassembling the hard drive and moving the disks inside. This is not something you can do.
This is what you will need.
1) a certified clean room surgical grade
2) tape
3) A matching drive/ hd board down to revision number
4) presision screw tools.
5) patience.

Or you will need to contact a professional data recover company.

Your harddrive is bad, the motor bearing that spins your cylinder heads is damaged, even though the harddrive hasn't been dropped, or removed, this is a result of faulty and cheap product. Theres nothing you can do to replace the motor bearing, you will need to just get a new harddrive and install into the external hd enclosure or get a new external drive. If you decide you want to recover your files, you will need to take this harddrive out and maybe take it to bestbuy/ office depot where they will have to send your harddrive out to a data recovery center. They might be able to recover some data, or all, or none. It is a pricey move to take this step.

The power supply could be failing.

I think you can take a try of this Mac data recovery software as is the best.
Note: do not attempt to write anything back in case data got overwritten.
