ST2000VX000 heads

I have a ton of DM donors in house right now so I REALLY don't want to order a VX drive to replace head 2. I have everything imaged except for that head. Anyone know if I can use DM heads on a VX drive? If not I'll order the dumb donor, but otherwise I'd love to use the stock that I have.

ER-Tools review

I got the full set a couple years ago and I've loved it. It was between ER and hdd surgery (a difference of several thousand dollars) and I went with ER.

I only get sad when I have a drive that doesn't match and have to use cut up sudafed medicine blister packs instead.

I know I'm late to the party. But how'd it go? I have tons of tips for you depending on the state of the drive. You're likely done already, but I'm just wondering.

WD PCB Terminal Connections

Here is the solution with the Toshiba adapter. I don't know if this will be of any help to anyone. Make sure that the drive is face up in this case.
