|Do you have hard drives laying around you don't use? Or maybe you're a good samaritan and would be willing to trade/sell your current hard drive to help a fellow forum-er in need?
Post any/all hard drives you would be willing to part with here! Include as much detail as possible! This is critical to ensure you aren't bothered with needless questions.
Perhaps a standard format could be:
Subject: MAKE MODEL
Make: (eg. Western Digital, Maxtor, Seagate)
Model: (as printed in large print)
Model#: (if the hdd has a coded model in addition to the major model)
Capacity: (the storage capacity stated on the drive)
MFG Date: (date the drive was manufactured)
DCM: (whatever that is)
Firmware: (if there is a firmware revision listed)
PCB: (entire PCB sticker exactly as printed)
Condition: (fully working, dead PCB, crashed platter w/ good pcb, etc)
Terms: (trade for equivalent, sale price, swap for new same or larger size drive, etc)
I will begin posting my HDDs shortly - feedback welcome!
Note: please do NOT post serial numbers... ever!
