[QUOTE=Wannez;2054013]One additional thing that you could try if this doesn’t work:
replace the green print (with chips and electrical circuits) with a print from an identical, working drive. Both drives have to be COMPLETELY identical though to give this any chance of success.
Only an additional and warning note:
But it is very important that the drive must be [B][U]COMPLETELY[/U][/B] identical! For instance if you have a WD drive named “WD400AB-C0BVA0” thant you can not take the board of the “WD-400AB-32CMB0”. Best would be if the two drives are produced in the same month.
If you try this way backup the data of the other HDD to be sure you have the data. It may be possibel to damage the electronic if the HDD and electronic does not fit 100%.
