Hi - this drive is a WD2000JB-00GVA0, DCM: DSBHCTJAA. I have a donor with the exact PCB match.

Here's a pic of the original drive with the burnt chip(motor controller maybe?). Question: Can I just pull the ROM chip and solder onto the donor? Or should I unsolder the burnt chip and replace it(though this seems near impossible since it has microscopic surface-mount leads)?

What do the pros do?

Thanks,

A

U12 is the ROM chip. You should move it the donor.

Hi Mate ,
Just Change the Rom Chip .If You Could Put the Drive In Safe Mode you Could Copy the Rom Via Pc-3000 And burn/write the same to donor ,Remember to backup the donor rom too.
