I ended up putting the drive itself into another usb caddy I have to
test it, but it turned out to be defective, so I junked the lot.

How'd you test it? Many LaCie drives were mated to Macintosh
systems, it wouldn't show up on Windows. And, if the drive
mechanism was bad, the case/interface is probably still fine,
why junk it?

Not LaCie, but i have had more cases die than drives.
