Western Digital hdd WD15EADS-00S2B0, 1.5TB Green Power 32MB cache 3.5" internal hdd

If you're in the Papatoetoe/Manukau/Auckland area there's a box of beer in it for you if I can borrow it for a bit to get my data off.

My hard drive has failed. It's not even spinning up, so I think, after some research, that the logic board is the actual problem.

If anyone has a spare one for sale, or even one that you're using but don't mind if I take the logic board off just long enough to get my data off, I'd be eternally grateful. Taking the logic board off will NOT void your warranty as it's on the outside of the drive and no seals need to be broken to take it off.

This one is the older drive with the 32mb cache, I don't think I can use the board from the newer 64mb cache version going by what I've read (but if anyone knows differently I'm all ears).

Mine has a manufacture date of 10 Sep 2009, and has 00S2B0 after the model #. I believe I need a drive that has that exact model #, but again, if anyone knows differently please let me know.

Please let me know if you can help! Thanks.

I have one of these exact drives it is only about 3 months old - not willing to let you 'borrow' it but would happily swap it for a new 2TB WD.

Have you looked on pricespy http://pricespy.co.nz/product.php?p=407409 it looks like they have WD15EADS not sure which exact version though
