My drive died yesterday. It won't spin up.
I think I can salvage it by replacing the board as I have boards that are "close" to fitting and I have tired them and I DO get a spin up, but because the circut is wrong I can't make it get noticed by the OS.
Western Digital says they won't sell board replacements.
Anyone know of a place that does?
Or another suggeston.

Keep an eye on www.ebay.com or some other public site market... and search for the model number.

Sooner or later a WD drive of the same model number could appear ?

that's the best hint i could come up with :))

hope it helps
