1. I have a Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 8 hard drive that I am trying to recover the files from. When the drive is connected, it’s beeping with loud noise. Also, I don’t see any activity in the computer when it’s connected. Would the PCB board swap fix my problem? How do I choose the proper board?
My drive is manufactured on: 24July2003
I appreciate any help.
2. I believe I need a replacement PCB for one of my 500GB Seagate drives. Powered down last night fine, powered up today and BIOS does not see it. Drive spins up fine, no clicking sounds. Removed it from PC and docked it in an external SATA USB dock, still not recognized. This was one of two “identical” drives that I had bought years ago. After trying to swap PCB boards, found out that the two PCB boards were actually not identical.
Here is the drive and PCB info:
Seagate Barracuda 7200.11
Date code: 08384
Site code: WUXISG
STX – ST3500320 AS(B)
PCB MOLD INFO
08051 78054 molex 100438797
REV A DLAJ-4
PCB sticker: 100468974 H M837K380
MAIN CONTROLLER IC: LSI TTB5501D
HDD Motor Combo IC: SMOOTH 100369972
I think I found the board on your website. Once I order the $39.00 replacement board, do I need to exchange the BIOS/Main Controller IC before I swap the hard drive PCB? That does not sound like something that one could easily do.
