Hi :) 

We often get asked this in my shops.... the ONLY way is an ABSOLUTELY IDENTICAL PCB ...which is virtually impossible to get as WD wont have them anymore and as i doubt its a new external drive, you would have to find an identical model, then buy it and swap the board...

And normally its the drive failed ...NOT the board...

All the best Brett :)

Cheapest solution is to buy another housing and remove the drive from the WD enclosure and put it in the new one.
