Why do people change the HDD PCB?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So, I was wondering, why do people sometimes exchange the PCB of a HDD? I have a HDD full of precious PS3 data, and I wuold like to recover it. BUT, since the HDD's get "married" to the motherboard, and the original motherboard is unrepairable broken and the HDD's are undecryptable (PM ME IF YOU CAN, PLEASE!!1!), it seems I have lost all data. But I won't give up. Ever.

Is it possible to exchange the PCB from another HDD (same type/GB) to make it work anyway? If so, I would do this:

"Marry" my current PS3 with the empty HDD, echange PCB's, and try to access the full HDD with the exchanged PCB.

Thanks for reading.

Changing the pcb wont make a difference as the encryption would be on the hdd platters it's self.

I hope someone know's how to recover your data otherwise that's a bummer!
