I looking for a pcb boad for hd western digital


That would be on another WD2500JB Caviar harddrive

Either that, or start looking on the internet posting -
WD2500JB PCB Board, and see what search hits come up.

Here,.....let me try.............

http://www.hdd-parts.com/18100096.html

Before you replace it, let me ask........
1) Was it in a Desktop PC?

2) Was it in an external harddrive?

External harddrive?
Then suggest you obtain a 3.5 IDE (PATA) external enclosure,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3883498&CatId=2780

In an external harddrive there is a small interface circuit board.

The Harddrive plugs into the small interface circuit board, and the USB cable is attached to the small interface circuit board.

It is this small interface circuit board that usually goes bad.

The external enclosure is just like the case of the external harddrive.
Has a USB cable going to a small interface circuit board, and the harddrive plugs into it.

I think you will need to send this drive to a data recovery professional if there is data on it you desperately want to keep. Otherwise confine it to the trash can, and get a new drive. Cheapest way out.

Vista OS computer does not see WD400 connected externally via USB to IDE cable.


Purchased a USB to IDE cable. Looked like it was communicating with the hard drive (WD400) my computer did not see the drive. (Vista OS).

Western Digital customer service recommended that I change the jumper pin to position #4 on the hard drive and install inside the computer as a an additional slave drive.

Worked perfectly.

Windows XP does not have built in SATA drivers. You will need to download the XP drivers from Western Digital's website and install before the computer will allow you to format and use your new drive. Hope this helps.

I am having trouble installing a second hard drive on my computer. Its a WD caviar enhanced IDE hard drive (model wd800) and I'm using a bidirectional Sata to Ide adapter since my computer works with SATA....


Have you enabled the drive in the BIOS yet?
To do this hit F2 when it starts up and then go down to drives. Hit enter and then locate the SATA port that you have it in and turn the drive on.

Let me know if this works or not. If it doesn't, give me additional details and we will try to fix it.

Formated Hard drive from Ebay


Hi,

Apparently you have tried most if not all of the basic install procedures.

If and when you connected it as a secondary or slave to a working/booting PC, was it auto detected at the CMOS/BIOS stage? If yes, then perhaps it is a partitioning/formatiing issue, if not then chances are that it is a hardware problem and the drive is dead.

Alternately, you can try using an external SATA/IDE Interface to USB such as a VANTEC CB-ISATAU2 SATA/IDE to USB 2.0 Adapter or any comparable product. This would provide the SATA/IDE connections to your new hard drive as well as a USB cord to your PC's USB port.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
