I have an old Emachine Notebook that I need data from. The original Toshiba drive has a missing PCB. I have been told there is no way to flash swap or use a donor drive's PCB due to the firmware issue. Does anyone know any work arounds for this? Is there a remote chance to get an exact donor drive with same PCB firmware installed on it?

Any input/options/ideas/work arounds would be greatly possible.
