Hi guys,

Was wondering if someone has any experience recovering a WD 640GB (WD 2060-701567-000 PCB) drive by replacing PCB's.

I am pretty sure the PCB is fried as i can see the damage. I also can see that BIOS is not available as external chip. Main Controller IC: 88i8845E-BHY2 has to be swapped i guess.

My question is basically if anyone ever did something like that to decide whether is worth the time. Can the bios be flashed again to donor drive if IC swap is not possible?

Any help appreciated guys.
