replace capacitors on WD external USB control board
So my WD USB controller board has 3 burnt capacitors on it after years of use i found the cause after cracking the case open. Now my main question is can i replace those capacitors by soldering in new ones or just find if they even make a replacement USB control board. the drive itself is fine i plugged it straight to my mother board it did manage to be recognized but it disappears after a few moments i did read there is something built in to the controller that protects your data.
Is this a good question?
