    Hey :)

    I have an old HD, not working.
    (fujitsu thing)

    Is there a tutorial out there on how to remove hard discs and replace
    the casing?

    What do you experts suggest me?

    Thank you all for your time!
     
  2. A modest clean room costs about a million to set up. Much cheaper to just
    replace the drive.
     
  3. It's not only the clean room. As soon as you loosen the discks, the
    alignment has gone to *ell.

    Why would you want to replace the casing? You don't like the color? :)

    Follow IBM's plan. Use them as an artificial reef, ("What holds 10 Mb of
    data or 250 CC of seawater?")

    Model #MPF or MPG in the US you have one week to claim re a class action
    lawsuit.

    o/w unless you have lost data the hdd is not worth bothering with.

  6. If it's one of the infamous MPF or MPG series drives, the problem is one
    of the chips on the circuit board, not any of the mechanicals. Some
    people apparently have had luck switching the logic board with an
    identical working drive, but that should only be relied on long enough
    to copy any data off the drive..
