Those aren't knobs on the side to unscrew or anything?

On topic though, what are you wanting this new/extra hard drive for?

Those are no knobs. They are just some rubber distance holders. And this is not an extra drive. I had it for about 5 years. If it works, I run it in one of my open enclosures - e.g. for imaging.
