I have an external hard drive (MHS2040AT < Fujitsu 40GB drive 2.5' Drive). It connects to the computer via either USB or Firewire. My client reported it suddenly stopped. Windows started reporting that the drive was malfunctioning etc..
I took it to a data recovery company and it turns out that the electronics on the PCB card were damaged and therefore required replacing. The cost being nearly £600.
My Questions :
1. What is a PCB card ?
2. Can buy a new MHS2040AT < Fujitsu 40GB drive 2.5' Drive for £50 and ask the company to simply swap the the new PCB card with the damaged PCB card ?
