Can I replace the Drive in my WD Elements? Tags: Hard Drives Western Digital Storage Last response: December 27, 2012 11:01 AM in Storage Share surfariver December 27, 2012 10:59:32 AM Hello, Been using a WD Elements 1.5TB hard drive to watch movies and music on my TV for about 2 years now and it appears I'm getting some bad sectors. Can I take apart the enclosure and put a new internal hard drive in there? If so, should I just look for a standard 3.5" SATA drive? With the old one out, can I hook that one into my PC to try to salvage a much data as possible? Or should I just not be a cheapskate and buy a new external HD all together? Thanks!
