Lost connectivity to my drive and something burnt

I have a WD my book world that is around 9 years old and the network control card / board is dead. Some part has blown can see black deposits around the enclosure.

The issue is when you power it on with or without the hard drive in it, i get a solid bottom light and slowly flashing top light.

Hard disk seems to be detected with a sata to usb cable with external 12v supply. So I guess would need to boot it via Linux and transfer the data.

Has anyone tried to fix the board? Someone mentioned a blown capacitor, any idea which one it is?

As there are no schematics available. and you also would need to do micro soldering, which is a specialised skill, why not just purchase a seperate external SATA drive enclosure. Personally I avoid these WD, Seagate, etc. with their proprietry connectors (yours is old so still uses standard SATA) and firmware.

Incidently there is freeware software that allows you to read LINUX disks in Windows.
