I have a 3 disk software based JBOD volume. On one disk the electronics failed.
Q: Does anyone know if I replace the drive electronics, will Windows XP recognize the repaired drive and thus recover the data?

Probably not; you'd have to replace with the same hardware build with the same firmware version, even then most modern hard drive control cards are calibrated to a set of mechanics during manufacture.

If it does work, make sure you buy a lottery ticket!
