I have some old hard drives that have PCB Circuit board failure but would like them fixed for experimental purposes.

I have different branded drives that are 3.5 inch, IDE and SATA.

The hard drive details are below. Any PCB boards will be appreciate. If not then a dead hard drive that I can take the parts out.

IBM / Hitachi Deskstar
HDS722580VLAT20
HDS722540VLSA80

SEAGATE ST3400832A Barracuda

MAXTOR 7850AV

Western Digital WD WD400BD-75JMA0

ExcelStor J840

As you can see from the above list the drives are old and I am confident that there are readers who either have dead drives or boards that are stored away. if so and are willing to give them a second life that will be put to good use and be used for educational purposes.

please get in touch

I am based in the UK
Please PM me for more details

Thanks

If you are competent with a multimeter, I could help you troubleshoot your boards. Sometimes there are simple DIY fixes.

I notice that you have a Seagate 7200.11 drive. Are you are aware of the BSY firmware bug?

FYI, here is a tutorial that you may find useful:
http://www.users.on.net/~fzabkar/HDD/Tutorial_SP0411N.html

I can help you ascertain the test points on your boards, as in this example:

This tutorial covers a common problem:

I have a SATA external hard drive. It is not detected by the PC. Sometimes it says it cannot be detected. But sometimes it says that it is installed but can actually perform faster. Both the times I cannot see it being displayed as a drive in my computer. Please help me.
