Two screws are missing.

I realise, I'm certain that's not the issue (theres another identical one with the screws in that also behaves the same). I believe this needs to be powered other than USB alone and Im trying to find out what cable is required

3.5" drives use both 5V and 12V, whereas 2.5" drives use only 5V. USB provides only 5V, so you can power up only 2.5" drives without external power supply (12V).

Great thanks, So it looks like I need a 12v for my 3.5" HDD here, is that just a sata that can plug into a wall?

Goes without saying if you do have a desktop you can plug the drive directly to the computer internal PSU ! Just make sure it's a good quality one ...

It's way better than using the external adaptor PSUs ...
