Which SATA/model drive would possibly have a compatible HSA?

There's a list of compatible PCB replacements on this thread: https://www.data-medics.com/forum/wd-pa ... e-t13.html

I think he wants head stack replacement. I have seen donor prices pretty high for WD5000BMVW

Blizzard, look for the same family, head map and compatible DCM code.

Yes, I was just trying to help original poster but he did not specify any more than WD5000BMVW-. Aren't WD5000BMVW- and WD5000BPVT- both Zephyr?

Hello

Exemple of swap case here :

WD5000BMVW-11AMCS0 used WD7500BPVT-22HXZT1


Good Luck

yeah I was referring to head stack assemblies. good info thanks.
Is there a readily available list of all the models within a family?

Sorry, before I misread it and was thinking you were looking for a PCB. Easiest way to know the family is by the letters in the code after the dash. I've kept a list of that going too, but I know it needs some updating. Here's that list: https://www.data-medics.com/forum/ident ... -t636.html

For 500Gb Zephyr's you're looking for

WD5000BPVT or WD5000BMVV or WD5000BMVW with a code after the dash containing either AMCS, HXZT, or SXZS

You can also pull heads from a 750Gb model in that same series, it might just have an extra head you don't need in some cases.

In the DCM you just need to match the 2 or J and the letter directly before it. I often try to match both of the two letters just before it, but it's not entirely necessary (e.g. NT2 or HTJ, etc.).

Beyond that, just try to get same country (pretty important) and as close a date as possible (very important).
