[Solved] Western Digital 160GB Caviar SE WD1600

I'm trying to help a friend recover some important data from a Western Digital 160GB Caviar SE WD1600 SATA hard drive.  We've determined that the logic board is bad, so we're looking for a working logic board from the same model drive.

 

The model number listed on the drive is WD1600JD-22HBC0.

 

The barcode on the logic board says "2061 - 701267 - 200 AL  XS 2C63 0YFY 9 0001030  6031"

 

Does anyone know if this will even work?

It is a bit of a long shot, but yes, finding an identical replacement logic board can work.  I have the following HP-branded drive:

 

Seagate Barracuda 7200.10
160 Gbytes 7200 RPM SATA
S/N: 5RX3ZHTA
ST3160815AS
P/N: 9CY132-785
Firmware: HPG1
Date Code: 08353
Site Code: WU

HP Model: GB0160CAABV
HP PN: 440300-003
CT: 2AABV0183VR07J
HP GPN: 397377-019

Security ID: 5F84PW7
Replace with spare part # 399968-001

 

As it is rebranded by HP, I'm not sure if it is a match with your drive or not.  Hopefully the above info is enough for you to do some research and find out (you might need to contact Seagate or HP).  This is one of my test drives, and I'm willing to part with it.  I could even remove the logic board and just send that to you if you want to save a bit on postage.

this drive won't work for sure you have a seagate and the OP has a WD

 

I had success a few times with board replacement but you really have to make sure you have the same board revision the last part

WD1600JD-22HBC0 is crucial

I may have this drive at home. Let me find it and I'll post back the information. It is still in the anti-static bag, which I'll have to open I think to get all the numbers off of it. Be right back.

 

Ok, here is what I have.

 

Western Digital 160GB

WD1600AAJS

 

I also have a DELL labeled drive that says made by Western Digital. That also is 160GB.

WD1602ABKS

 

I don't know what you exactly need, but those are the two I have. Both are working drives.

Thanks for all of the replies.  We found a matching drive on eBay and managed to recover the data from the original drive!

 

FYI: simply swapping the logic boards did not work initially, we also had to swap one of the chips on the original logic board to the replacement board.  Lucky for us, we found someone with some mad soldering skills who did that part for $10.
