Question about Western Digital Caviar SE16 (WD5000AAKS) 500 GB SATA Hard Drive
I have a WD5000AAKS external drive. It stopped working. Spins up when I plug it in and then shuts down. I would like to try to recover my data from the disk without spending a fortune. Any suggestions on how to recover my info myself?
Take it apart and get a bridge cable called IDE to USB or ATA to USB.
Connect the cable to your PC and take out the files.
