Hi, A WD Drive ( WD4003FZEX ) the SATA connector has broken off. The PCB reads as 060-771822-002 REV A. Now i have a non-working drive (WD4000FYYZ), which has similar PCB - 060-771822-002 REV p1.
Can i use this PCB from WD4000FYYZ on the WD4003FZEX drive. Please guide me here.

Yes, and no. The PCB is probably hardware compatible. Sometimes the REV matters, but usually not, it just depends on what they revised. If it's just a different brand of RAM it won't matter, but if it's the main IC or motor control chip it might.

However, this drive has an adaptive ROM that makes it unlikely to just work after a cold PCB swap. You'd have to transfer the U12 ROM chip (if it has one) to make it actually work.

If you're just looking to get data back off of it, you're better off just temporarily gluing the plastic piece back in and making a SATA connection using the original board.
