I shorted my external hard drive by putting in the wrong power source. Now I’m in need of a new logic board. It’s a Western Digital My Book 500 GB.
The hard drive itself is a WD Caviar GP.
WD P/N WD5000AAVS - 00G9B0
The logic board’s numbers are:
2061-701537-Q AD (sticker)
2060-701537-004 REV A
I bought a board from this website after the guy told me a board for a 2TB would work, but it did not. It’ll show up on my disk utility (using a caddy), but not my desktop and it says the drive is a 2TB. Was I screwed/misinformed, or is there another way to get my music off of the drive? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Haven’t had access to my music in about two months now and it’s driving me crazy.
