Could be a power overload and fry out of the USB HD Hub/HD docking station -though a rarity it would be -it is possible.

Never should use a different adapter than the one that came with the said device.

 

Would it not just be easier to remove the hard drive from the enclosure and then plug it in like a normal hard drive to the computer and use along with the main drive?

 

Also removing your main drive -if it is the only drive in the system -would mean there is no operating system in the computer.

Though I don't know if not having a hard drive connected to the motherboard via sata connection would mean the system would not boot up.

ok so i did the second paragraph. anyways i figured it out. 

 

there is a diode your next the the sata power connection on the back of the PCB the was blown out by using the wrong power adapter.

to fix this i was going to just desolder it and it should just be able to turn on long enough for me to get my data off of it. sadly this did not work for the diode isn't just simply soldered on to the board. instead i just ordered a new PCB from https://www.onepcbsolution.com/ my PCB model number is 2060-800039-P1 and thankfully they had the right replacement for me. only thing i have to do (and i opted into this, they offer to do this for you) swap the bios chip over. im doing this myself because i feel it gives my the perfect reason to research and learn how solder.

 

 

So ive had a 1TB WD blue for about 2years and since i have no internet at my house i bring my hard drive along with a 3.5inch to usb adapter/dock sorta thing. anyways it has the universal power connector thats the same as my laptop and jbl speaker charger. so i lost the included power adapter so i packed the JBl one i tested it before i left home to make sure it works and it spun up. so i unplugged it and left getting to school plugged it in anddddd nothing not even a white light on the adapter. so im thinking the charger broke the adapter kinda sucks but ok. so i unplug the internal hardrive in the computer im working on and plug in mine and nothing the fan doesn't spin nothing. plugging the original hard drive in and unplugging and plugging the power cable in and out again and it works doing the cycle again same result. so looking around and thinking is it somthing to do with the power cable i used and i messed up the circuits on the hard drive. or is the any other ideas yall have.

What else would it be because whenever you put the original hard drive back in it works perfectly fine the only with my hard drives does it not work

 

I'm trying to get out of this would it be something I can fix as far as I know it's the hard drive is this going to be like one of those things we have to bring it to a professional and they fix it

If it's internal, and nothing works when you plug it in to your computer, and everything works when you remove it, then it sounds to me like you fried the controller board on the hard drive...

...I hope you have backups...
