Q; hello. i have wd 20nmvw 2TB hard disk. but the the usb port on board
is broken. can you please tell me will the hard drive work again if i
change only usb jack on board or desolder the old jack back on board.
or i need change the board for fixing my drive?
A: Swpping PCB and changing the BIOS is easier then change the USB port. You can refer: https://www.hddzone.com/conditions.html and choose the correct donor PCB from our webiste. When you get the PCB, you can move the BIOS from your original PCB by using hot-air gun, then solder it on the replacement board.
