Hey all, Its my first time posting here and wondering if anyone can help?

My slave HDD stopped working a week or so ago and is now seen as unknown device on my pc (in device manager).

The drive still spins up and infact got it to show when i put it into a different sata port for a few minutes but pc said there was an issue and couldnt unlock drive (bitlocker).

so my question is - do you think this drive is dead or should i try replacing the pcb?

Thanks in advance Mark
