I'm confused. How does getting a WD10EADS help you rescue files? Are you gonna swap the platters or something crazy like that?

umm after reading a lot and doing some research there is a slim possibility that if i swap out the circuit boards i may have a chance to recover my files

So your drive appears to be totally dead? Like it won't show up in your bios?

How many SATA cables have you tried? Have you tried all of your ports?

I just figure it's worth asking about any alternatives before you swap your PCB. That really a longshot and more likely to just end up with you down $100 worth of drives. How much does sending it to a disk recover expert cost?

yep in the bios its just blank theres nothing. ive tried different cables and ports.
i was recovering the drive and lost power to my computer then it stoped working

hi did you solve this? I have exactly same problem with WD10EADS-00M2B0 Caviar Green 1TB

mine was in an external USB caddy when the power was pulled now windows can't see it...

when in caddy it shows as "WD" in device manager and safely remove hardware tool

when plugged through sata, BIOS placeholder is blank and boot screen shows S.M.A.R.T. None

WD Data Life Guard gave error 08 (which could be S.M.A.R.T. failure as 0008 is code for S.M.A.R.T. failure)

I suspect it is either the S.M.A.R.T. or Firmware that has failed.

I too would like to try a replacement PCB but I suspect the damaged Firmware is actually contained on the disk'd negative cylindders - no idea how to get to that

Have you tried contacting WD support -- they might have a PCB that they could send you to try (figure it should still be under warranty since those 2 platter drives were not released until around July of 2009 and have a 3 year warranty !!
