    I have a WD800JB that is a year old. I messed it up while fussing with some cables while the computer was on. I believe all I did was damage the PCB board. I ordered a drive that I thought was similar enough and switched the boards, only to ruin the new HD.

    Is there somewhere I can find an exact PCB board to try?

    MDL: WD800JB-00FMA0
    DATE: 07 Jun 2004

    Code on PCB: 2060-001209-004 REV A

    I believe the board I tried was a 2060-001209-000 REV A (I am not sure, I have already sent it in)

    I *REALLY* need the data off this drive, but I don't think I would be willing to pay $700+ to retrieve the data.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
