Yes that is possible.  I use a Sabrient enclosure myself which is SATA /
PATA with USB / firewire connectors whereas I am not sure of these drive
included setups.  By all means if you can get it apart try the cable
directly but before removing the drive be sure the connectors are
standard and not married in some proprietary fashion to the enclosure.

I have diagnosed many a drive caddy issue by bypassing and sometimes
found cable issues as well that way.  so I always get the Cables out of
old systems saves a lot of shopping.
