    I've got a Deskstar 60G HD IDE, (ex Ebay) however upon receiving it I have found that 2 of the 4 PCB screws are missing and the Drive is not working. :( :( It was advertised as not working but I thought it might have been a fdisk problem and so I got it, not knowing the top had also been removed.
    Siiiiiii such is life.

    I am now working on the assumption that if the PCB is faulty, then if I can replace it with another, I just might get it up and going.

    Would anyone out there in internet land have a PCB off a known drive or know how or where I might get my HD working again?

    I sent it to IBM in Australia, but they returned to me, package unopened, not being prepared to offer me any help.

    So this is a last ditch attempt to get some help.

    Personally, I'd consider this a valuable lesson and not put any more money into this endevor. It's quite likely that the HDA is defective, and you've be putting more money into a losing cause.
