I have the following drive:
MDL: WD2500KS - 00MJB0
DATE: 30 OCT 2005
When I power it up it doesn't sound like it is spinning it all??? It beeps 3 times then a pause then it beeps 3 times again another 4 times.
The diagnostic reports states:
|Test Option:||EXTENDED TEST|
|Model Number:||WDC ROM MODEL-HAWK-----|
|Unit Serial Number:||N/A|
|SMART Status:||Not Available|
|Test Error Code:||08-Too many bad sectors detected.|
|Test Time:||17:00:43, April 03, 2011|
What are my chances of getting this working again could it be the PCB?

08-Too many bad sectors detected... Not a bad PCB, this drive is dead, if possible contact WD and replace the device.
