if you have no experience with soldering work don't do it your self.


first,i told you this. and secondly splidit give a very reasonable offer.

if you don't like to pay even solderding cost, what we do.

now you are far from DIY.

Best way to save the data if you can’t afford data recovery price , leave it as is until time when you be able to afford service. You did mess already and you probably do another mess . Don’t try anymore.

thanks.
firmware level work is well above my knowledge and skill.
sadly, i believe it is time to count this drive as a loss.

Store it on a safe place. If later you do need the data you know what you do ...

@Dananjaya:
i agree that Spildit's offer is a reasonable one. especially when compared to other DR services i've priced. however it's either recover my data, or pay the power bill.

@dragon..

yes. i can understand you situation. but i mentioned you about, only soldering work. it was very easy work for tech. and very cheap price like 0-10 usd.

now your original ROM damaged. without original ROM can't access your data.

now need ROM regen and need specific hardware tools for it.

if you have any important data, then don't take too long. bec.An oxide can be formed in the head,and motor error , filter damage.

Maybe a competent engineer can do something with the broken pins?

So one way of doing it would be to carefully remove whats left of the broken ic and fit it to the replacement board.
Then with a sharp scalpel one can very carefully scrape away the black material next to each broken pin just enough to expose the remains of the pin. Then solder a fine wires to the pcb and then to the ic exposed connections.

I have to say one almost requires the hand skills of a surgeon to do this but it can be done. Then quickly copy off the required data.

Please do not try to do this yourself but find somebody who is good with micro component level pcb repairs and the like. Maybe a competent mobile phone repair specialist who does it in house.

Waste of time ....

Just place the replacement PCB on the drive and use something like WDMarvel PLUS to generate the adaptives on ROM needed to gain access to the data .... Of course it does require as well to usea correct version of the ROM file to match the drive overlay but very easy to do as the drive spins and doesn't click ... Simply get a copy out of SA of overlay 11, check FW version and download from somewhere required ROM. Then patch ROM modules using WDMarvel ... done.

No not a waste of time.
I have had to do it several times for people and not just on WD drives. With success. :D
