Question about Western Digital Caviar SE16 (WD5000KS) (5000KS20PK) 500 GB Hard Drive

Bad logic board on Western Digital Caviar SE16 500 GB SATA Hard drive

My WD 500GB SATA WD5000KS went out on me, stopped spinning. I need the data (no backups) and I don't want to spend 3k-4k for data recovery, if I don't have to. I tried finding an identical replacement drive to attempt a logic board swap, but only found 1 that is close, but not matching the DCM#. Apparently I need a WD5000KS-00MNB0 model with a DCM# close to HBHCAJAAB or the board swap wont work. The 1 I found does enable the drive to spin up, but BIOS now says hard drive error, and I can't access anything on it.(tried software data recovery to no avail) The board I found on eBay has a DCM# of HCHCAJAAB and was same date of manufacture, and not it spins and clicks, whereas before I swapped the logic boards it did not spin at all. If anyone has a suggestion for this problem I would very grateful, Ed Spann

    Hi,
    I have seen that you talked in the last year about a WD5000YS with the DCM "HCHCAJAAB".
    Does anybody has a glue where to find this HD?
    I would need it very urgent and would be glad for any information where I could get such a HD with the exact DCM.
    Thanks
    Please email me.

    My hard drive was an external Maxtor 500gb, it would show as connected by usb but nothing in my computer, eventually i took it apart to find that its a normal SATA Maxtor 500gb and that there is a chip thats freid on my logic board.

    now i need to find the exact same logic board to replace it. can you help?

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your "((motherboard to your hard drive))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps

Try reseating the power connector for the drive. You can try another unused connector if it will reach. Do the same for the data cable. Reseat both ends of the cable a couple of times to shine up the contacts. If none of this works, then a data recovery service will be needed.
