I blew my scsi hard drive logic board a while back and after a needle in a haystack search I finially found and purchased a new drive with the same specs firmware etc from ebay.
The plan was to add the logic board to my old drive so I could access all my old data.

After the swap the drive was recognised on booting up and also shows in my computer. When I try to access the drive it says that it is write protected and when I look at the drive propertys it comes up as raw.
Is there anything I can do to overcome this? The jumper setting is identicle to the old logic board.
Is there anyway I can retreive my old data??
Any and all advice is welcome....TIA
