hard drive with burnt PCB (Western Digital WD5000AAKB)

I have a Western Digital WD5000AAKB (my storage drive) with a burned PCB.

Would it be wise to connect the hard drive to a computer and try to transfer data?

Or should my next step be to find a hard drive with similar PCB?

I wouldn't connect it to anything with a fried PCB. If you swap the PCB it can't just be similiar it has to be identical for it to work. Here's where you might be able to find one.

It's definitely not available there.

The PCB# is 2061-701596-500 06P XC 7Y04 161N Q 0005300 9305
