Question about Maxtor DiamondMax D540X 40 GB Hard Drive
I have an old dell computer, the hard drive inside is a maxtor d540x-4k. It stopped working on me and i took it to a friend who knows a bit, he used it as a slave but couldn't get it to power up, he thinks that i may need to replace the pcb on the side of the drive, which i can do, but i have no idea where to get 1? do you think this is the problem? if so where can i pick up a new pcb? the data on the drive is v important but i can't afford the silly money the data recovery people are aasking!
You are not likely get parts for a hard drive. You simply replace them. If you have data to remove then there is a plethora of software to down load.[ PCIspector/BadCopy Pro to name but 2] You could also put it into the freezer overnight and try running it before it warms up.
