Hi everyone. I have a clicking hard drive. I know that it is dead but I want to give it a go and try to pull out the platter and drop it into a new drive. The data is not essential, I just want to give it a go. Its been done before. see this link: http://www.freewebs.com/bgotchall/index.htm Question: Apparently, I need to get an identical HDD to drop the platter into. I have found many in yahoo japan auction ( I live in Japan). But how close do I need to be with the model #'s? Example: Mine is Western Digital 1600BB-98FTAO The one I found for $16 is Western Digital 1600BB-22GUAO is this close enough??
