Had an "incident" at the weekend which resulted in the SATA terminals on my hdd being burnt away. Now upon reading up on the issue, I have found even after obtaining a new PCB it is still required to desolder the HDD bios chip and swap onto the new board. Has anyone had success doing this? Has anyone had luck in NOT having to swap the chip? The HDD contains the past few years of music productions and the contents are very important. Im concerned about tampering with this chip and losing access forever.
