welp i had 2 of the drives bad and was able to fix one of them. the other has the click of death now but that is my fault for trying the pcb swap from another identical drive with same date code i think because i was reading somewhere else that that would work also. can't even telnet into the drive now. the guide was spot on and thx for the great info. at least i was able to save one drive.
