Operating System Version: Windows XP
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model: Western digital WD400JB-OOENAO
Error Messages:

Can anyone help me. I pretty sure my power supply shorted and blew out the circuit board on my hard dirve. It's a Western Digital 40 Gig. I'm looking for another circuit board to match the model number above.  I just want to retreive my info off the drive.  Can any one tell me where to look other than e-bay.  I have been watching there.

I doubt western Digital will allow you to do anything like that. There are special companies int he world that can retrieve the data for you, but those are costly afairs.

At all the times my Maxtors, WDs and Fujitsus failed, I always wanted to retrieve the data as well, but once you can't reach the drive, it's too bad. Unless you're a specialist in fine soldering and that, could you probably replace the board, but otherwise it's usually a thing of checking at WD's site if you can RMA the drive and get a new one (if you're in the warranty time) or throwing it in the bin and getting a new drive.
