Default WD PCBs

I have a hard drive I got relatively cheap due to the pins being broken off on the PCB. I've attempted to re-solder the pins back on for both the power and data connections but when the drive is put into a computer it does not show in the bios so my guess would be that my soldering skills need more work. I've been looking for a place to buy a replacement PCB but have not had any luck so far. Does anyone happen to know where I might find one?

Good luck. Can you post some pics of your hard drive and your solder job? Perhaps we can help.

I only have a camera phone and the image quality is pretty bad so I'll have to wait until I get home and hopefully someone has a digital camera. I re-soldered all of the power pins again but still nothing, I'll try re-doing the data again because when I put the drive into a computer it spins up immediately, just no bios or hot-swap notification.
