I plugged a 24v power supply into the G-Drive by accident. Now the G-Drive will not power up using the normal 12v 2amp power supply.
I have important documents on this drive. What is my best course of action to recover the data or preferably to get the G-Drive working again?
I understand how to pull the hard drive and hook it up to a external sata cable to recover the data. I would prefer to fix the whole G-Drive because it is an expensive unit.
- Are there replacement parts for this drive? could I replace the circuit board?
- Is there a fuse?
- Would the 12v diode be blown? I read something about a WD external hard drive having a blown diode after an over voltage.
- is it a 3.5" HDD?
Any help is appreciated.
