Default Hard disk won't work after changing case

I have an external seagate 2TB and i bought a new case since the power adapter of the old case broke when i tried to connect it.

The problem is that the hard disk is not recognised in the new case.

here is my disklabel
$ sudo disklabel sd0c
# /dev/rsd0c:
type: SCSI
disk: SCSI disk
label: 001-9VT156      
duid: 0000000000000000
bytes/sector: 4096
sectors/track: 63
tracks/cylinder: 255
sectors/cylinder: 16065
cylinders: 30400
total sectors: 488378646
boundstart: 0
boundend: 488378646
drivedata: 0 

16 partitions:
#                size           offset  fstype [fsize bsize  cpg]
  c:        488378646                0  unused

I noticed that with the old case the label was 'i' and now is 'c'.Also if i try to mount i get;

$ sudo mount -t msdos /dev/sd0c /usr/usb/externaldrives/ 
mount_msdos: /dev/sd0c on /usr/usb/externaldrives: Inappropriate file type or format
Normally i should see something like msdos or ntfs. :/
I have an Ubuntu laptop which also won't find the disk.

Any ideas? :/ I don't wanna lose my data.It's more than 1TB. :/

edit:It's a SATA hd.
