Hi, I have a Diamond Max 8 hard drive that failed. Actually I have had allot of these go, and found out that they are a special drive to repair. I think when they go its the electronics that go, whatever, I usually send them out, but fee to get the data off these is usually 1,200, instead of the usual 300 for most drives.
I have a working drive, same drive, and would like to try to physically swap as many parts as I can from the working one, to the broken one in a weak stab to repair it. The client will not pay the 1k to fix the drive, so I figure this would be a good attempt to repair the drive, and learn something.
Question, I have taken out all of those star screws from the bottom, and removed the circuit board thing from the bottom, and also removed the 3 star screws from the top (under stickers), how do I split the drive, and open it up.
Thanks a ton...
