  1. Gradius2- Let me start off and personally thank you for the work you have done in putting together this guide for us all. I haven't performed the fix yet, but am planning to very soon. I am wondering if it would be at all possible to give a part list with links to a site where you purchased your materials. I already saw your RS232 link but I want to make sure I get the right connectors, wires, battery holders, etc. I hope I am not being to forward. Also I'd like to make a suggestion for you to set up some way that others, including myself, can possibly send a donation as a sign of appreciation for what you have done. If it wasn't for this guide, many people might be forced to pay hundreds of dollars in data recovery fees. .. just a thought.

Any thoughts on this? I admit I'm not entirely sure what this entails, but seems interesting. I would surely but another ~$60 drive and swap the pcb boards for data recovery. Actually I'll probably have to break down in a couple months and pay for professional recovery if nothing turns up with this issuee...
