Hello WD Community,
3 days ago, my external hard drive My Book Essential 4TB USB 3.0 do not show any kind of power (no light and no beep sound). Though a day before that I was just using it normally backing up some files and videos, of course I applied all the mention remedies in the WD Community and WD Support Page. So because of that I decided to open up the external hard drive by just sliding it down avoiding things that might cause any damage inside and boom! I just saw some burnt markings on the pcb bridge.
My question is, what if I decide to purchase another 4 TB Essential or another brand of WD External Hard Drive and use the new pcb bridge to the old external hard drive, will it work? I cannot afford to lose the data stored in that hard drive.
