Faulty circuit board of clickfree hard drive hd325. Where to find the board. Pls! Help!

This is en external HDD. This means, there's a HDD inside the package, and a small PCB (print with tiny ICs on it). If you're lucky, the PCB is defective, while the HDD is OK. In that case, you only need to look for another USB Harddisk enclosure for a 2.5 inch SATA harddisk. Maybe your local computer-store sell these casings, otherwise check internet (eBay for example)

To be sure it's either the HDD or the PCB, just open up the casing and remove the HDD. Insert this HDD into a PC, connecting it to the motherbord over a SATA-cable (and don't forget to use a powercable too).

If the HDD becomes visible under Windows or whateven operating System you use, than it's indeed the PCB, which is defective. If the HDD is not visible, maybe the HDD is defective. In such case, you can find at internet a new(er) HDD of identical make (brand / type HDD)

Remove the six screws and detach the HDD When mounting the HDD unit,be sure that the flat cable is under the plastic sheet of the HDD upper case.

Solution 1# :
It can be a Sector Problem ,to resolve it just press 1&9 keys at the same time the machine started the HD Diagonose and it repared the sector error without replacing the HDD .

Solution 2# :
try to go in to disc check service mode to clear the sectors ,this should work if it doesnt you will need to replace the hard drive .

Solution 3# :
Try HD clear & then HD check for every sector in service mode. Then try to upgrade system software;If nothing works change hard disk ,format & install system software. Posted by Kuyung at 5:50 AM icon18_edit_allbkg.gif Labels: error code 602-0003 IR5000, error code 602-0003 IR6000

Your HDD motor or PCB (on the HDD) blew
IF it is the PCB, you can jot down the numbers on the connector (look for this pattern: xxxx-xxxxxx-xxx-xx) and googlee for it. If you are lucky, someone selling a WD Caviar Blue WD5000AAKB - hard drive - 500 GB - ATA-100 will look at their PCB and see if the revisions match. BUY the HDD!!
You now have a 50/50 chance to get the HDD working again.....
IF the motor blew, you WILL hose the new board, and end up with 2 bad drives
IF the PCB blew, it might just surprise you and work. I have used this trick to recover data for $$$ on 8,20,60,80,160,200,and 250 WD drives that were out of warranty. Good Luck

The other option is IF the motor went bad, and you will certainly know if you see burned chips on the back of the PCB or hear a loud POP when you try the new one... You only have 3 choices.

1. Send the HDD off to a Data Recovery $ervice (No guarantee here)
2. Send it to WD for a warantee replacement (and forever lose your data)
3. Take off the HDD cover, bridge the Positioner, DO NOT TOUCH anything in there and Manually spin the HDD Platter spindle to EXACTLY 3500 or 7200rpm (depending on drive) with a tiny speed-controlled motor and a tachometer, then plug it into ext USB bridge and your PC and if the motor drive is the ONLY thing bad, the speed sense will engage, and the heads will load and you will have ~20min-2hr before the HDD dies due to contamination of the heads and platters(dust, smoke, pet hair,, human skin flakes, moisture and oxygen) so grab the essential files quick! I recommend Total Commander (Hilight all you NEED (not want - there isnt time) and drag to copy. PRACTICE TC on a good HDD. If you miss a file or folder, you will have to cancel and redo, or wait until all others highlighted are done first. Make a list - stick to it.

I have done this 5-6x so far. Several old Seagate and Maxtor 80Gb and for the larger, I Built a mini clean room, complete with forced filtered heat (hairdryer pulling its air thru a HEPA filter. for motor, I Used an expensive German variable speed dremel-like tool and cheap tach from Harbor Freight.

Good Luck!
