Question about Western Digital Caviar WD2500BB 250 GB Hard Drive
Hi, i have an entertainment system which is basically a pc. the system is powered by windows with proprietory multimedia software. This is what happened: The hdd failed oneday. I tried changing the circuit board of the hdd and manage to clone the system into another hard drive. Now the problem is when i plugged the new hdd into the system, it wont start properly as the software is locked against the serial number of the hard drive. Eventhough the new hdd is the exact same model, the software just wont work. My only option is to change the serial number of the new hdd to the old one. I understand by doing so will void the warranty of the hdd but thats the price i'm willing to pay. I tried talking to the tech support of the hdd company but they just dont entertain 3rd party software issues. The seller of the appliance is MIA and I couldn't locate the developer. Would anyone please help me to solve my problem? Thanks.
It is not the volume ID that I'm talking about. Its the HDD Physical's Serial Number. The one that is assigned by the manufacturer.
