in order to do this do i need to have the Exact same model number as mine? OR can the last letters after the model number be different? ie mine is WD3200BUDT. (if any1 has 1 spare get intouch) or can i use one from say a WD3200BUXT?
I have been told my harddrive is fine as it powers up and sometimes itll connect,iand that ts the board that has had it and that i can swap boards to retrieve my data and be working again..(alot of vids on youtube too)
I've used one with slightly different model number like in your first example but I already had confirmation that it was the same bd just for a different client. ie - manufacturers make the same drive with 5 different models so store dont have to pricematch kind of thing.
