I'm looking for a faulty hard drive to revive one of my 300GB seagate hard drives. The hard drive board got damaged so i'm looking for replacement/donor drive to fix the old one. I have some important data which i need to recover.

If you have a faulty Seagate hard drive with atleast one component labeled "3R3" on the PCB board, please let me know. The capacity of the hard drive does not matter.

I've got a 500GB Barracuda 7200.10 that I've had trouble with sometimes (access times can be very slow) and the drive keeps clicking (among other noises) very loudly. Not bothered sending it back as the warranty is over as it sat in a box for over a year until Ihad to use it as an external back-up drive.

The circuit board has two '3R3' components on it so it should be OK for what you want. Not sure what you're willing to pay, but I'd start at £40 + P&P either by Paypal or Bank Transfer

Also, do you have any feedback from ebay or somewhere else?

Thanks for the offer, but i think it's a little too much for a faulty drive. Besides i'm not interested in the capacity as i'll be throwing away the actual drive (maybe keep the magnets : ) Just need the PCB.

I'll wait for other offers.

PS: Yes i currently have 231 feedback on ebay. PM for username.
Feedback score: 231|Positive feedback: 99.6%
No Probs, the only reason I said that amount was that it does still work, but it can just be problematic. To be honest I thought you would haggle, but if you're not interested then that's OK. Cheers.
I thought it would be silly of me to spend around £40 on something i will throw away - especially if it was working.

But i appreciate your offer.
