I'm wondering if you can help me. I require a Western Digital Hard Drive
with the following specifications:

Drive Type: Western Digital Caviar
Model Number: WD 205AA
Speed: 5400 RPM
Interface: E-IDE
Manufactured: May 2000

The drive controller has failed and the only way to retrieve my data is to
get another exactly the same. :confused:

Many older wd hard drives all have the same back board, I don't realy have that much money, though, so all my experience is in 2.1 gig hard drives to 10 gig or so, but if it is an older hard drive, that may be an option. I have replaced the board form a 2.1 gig WD hd to a 10 gig WD, and it worked. Be shure though to check to make shure both of the hard drives rpm's check, though, because i have only done this operation on drives that have the same rpm's, but it might work. Anyways, Good luck...
