Does anyone know how to power up a hard drive motor?
I ahve a dead hard drive (hopefuly it wasn't the motor that burnt out). I
would like to power the motor without using any of the electronics that were
on the controller. There are 4 pins that were connected from the motor to
the controller. It is an older drive so I am thinking it is probably a 5400
RPM or so. I applied power to the pins thinking it would spin but ir just
vibrates a bit.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
