I can only echo what ferrarr had to say. The instructions you keep referring to are simply wrong. Trust me, I have removed more than one internal hard drive to use externally in the past.

If you don't see the drive in Disk Utility as suggested, then we need to look more at your hardware. You may have a faulty USB cable, or something wrong with the circuit board inside the USB case itself. Maybe the drive simply is not connected properly inside the case.
