I have a 320G Western Digital hard drive which experienced a power surge some years ago. I have 300GB of data that is not visible once I switched out the hard drive’s ‘motherboard’ in an effort to get the drive to spin up. I was not able to find the exact same circuit board to replace the blown out one with.
The drive will spin up with the replacement board, but I can only see the 20GB portion that has no data on it (the end of the drive.) I have 300GB worth of trapped data that I would like to be able to have access to. Does anyone know where I can get an exact duplicate of the circuit board that came with the hard drive or how to repair/redefine the geometry of the new board so I can see and use the data that is on the first 300GB of the drive?
The information for the board and the drive is below. The OS was originally Windows XP and the last time the drive was accessible was in 2006. Thanks for any help or suggestions you can provide.
