Finding replacement circuit boards for HDD

By MediaGuy1974 ·
Yes, I know, I know, it's a daunting task, could lose all data, etc. I'm well aware of the dangers involved. The data is not THAT important. Much of it can't be replaced, but it's stuff I haven't accessed forever. If I can get it back, fine. If not, no biggie. Here are the facts, as I know them:
The drive I,m trying to salvage is a Seagate, (I know, first mistake). I have all the particulars right down to the numbers on the board itself. My problem is I can't find any place to beg/borrow/steal one. If anyone can steer me toward someone who can help me, I'd be eternally grateful.

ebay and Surplus

by TheChas In reply to Finding replacement circu ...

Just buy the same model drive on ebay and use that drive as a doner drive for the old drive.

You can also check sites that deal in old and surplus hardware like geeks.com and pacificgeeks.com
