I dropped my WD elements drive a few month back and gradually it has gotten worse and worse for not being recognised by PC’s.
I’ve managed to get all my data off that I wanted but I was hoping to resurect this if possible and use it for my daughters TV.
The enclosure is no more so all I have is the drive itself (WD10TMVV-11TK7S1).
Basically now when I plug in the drive the white LED lights, flashes a few times but doesn’t get recognised by the PC.
Does any one know of any fixes for this?
Also somewhere to buy a new enclosure?
One thing I had thought about was, is it possible to change the PCB so it is a SATA (or even PATA) connection rather than a USB? If that waspossible I could stick it in a cheap PC and use that as a media server for my daughters TV?
Many thanks for any help
