My friend asked me to help solve a problem about a WD external drive, with family files on it.
We have a WD5000AACS - 00ZUB0, WD Caviar GP drive. My friend thinks that the electronics of the drive is dead and we need to change that. The sticker on the electronics says" 2061 - 701477 - 600 AB XT 5F03 PWDL 7 0005170 8 175"
I found an eletronics with the same firmware on eBay:
Electronics from eBay
Will this electronics work with our harddrive? The dimensions/physical size of the electronics is the same. No visible difference, only the sticker (!).
