    Need jumper pin info on a WD5000LPCX WD Blue 500GB


    This Sata 3 drive was the boot drive for a laptop bought in 2014. It started presenting problems and it "quit" working about 6 months ago. This was not my computer but a friend of mines estranged gf's computer. They were interested in trying to retrieve information of the WD-HD. Ik one should backup internal drives but that is not my place they are adults. Another friend who is a certified computer field technician tried to retrieve data from the WD-HD but was unsuccessful. I am just a hacker though I have been working on PC desktops and laptops since 1984. It occurred to me back in the day that hard drives could be configured as a primary drive or as a secondary/slave drive depending upon moving the jumper pins around. I went to Western Digital's website and tried to ascertain the jumper settings for that purpose but I am not finding that out. Of course I could just switch pins around and see what results that I have. But I would prefer a definitive jumper settings information. Since this hd was primarily configured as a primary drive this information may not be readily available on their website.

    WD Purple or Blue?

    Agreed one of the most common failed drives I get into the shop are failed WD Blues or any of the 500GB slim 2.5" drives. Brand doesn't matter on those.

    My suggestion, avoid the Blues at all costs. I wouldn't trust my data on a WD Blue if WD was paying me to use it.
