Bad logic board on Western Digital Caviar SE16 500...

Thanks for your reply. The board I swapped with was the same model number and even same month of manufacture, but the DCM# of the firmware was not the same. Anyone know where I can find Western Digital logic boards for the WD5000KS 00MNB0 with specific firmware codes? It is a 500GB SATA. Thanks, Ed

Windows7 wont read wd1600 caviar as a external drive ???

Did you install the western digital drive softare? There should have been a disk with the drive, which you run when you have installed the drive. It tells the computer there is a new hdd in town. If you don't have the disk, google Western Digital, find their website, and search for HDD driver software, with the model number of your drive. You should be able to download the drivers to your computer, and install them that way.

My Western Digital Caviar WD1600BB 160 GB hard drive in my dvd recorder is making a clicking sound, how do I test to see if it is the heads that are faulty or the circuit board?

Welcome to Fixya. If you are hearing a loud ticking or high pitch noise on the hard drive it means that the hard drive will be defective anytime soon. If you can take out the hard drive and backup the files on you computer and replace the hard drive on the computer. Loud noise can be caused by a bad spindle or the hard drive or the hard drive is frying inside the dvd recorder.
If you have questions please let me know. Thanks

Just bought a new cpu, put it together and purchased the western digital 160 gb sata II model number WD1600AAJS. i am installing windows 7 on it, or attempting and it won't recognize the drive. it says it...

The drivers are not needed, West. Digital is right. Your problem is that the hard disk is not recognized by the motherboard (not the cpu). Since you didn't mentioned anything about motherboard's brand / model, I have to tell you that you have to get into the bios settings and get yout hard disk recognized by the bios. I assume that the connections are right.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
