You have 3 options...
1. You can try and figure out why the drive will not spin up a disc, motor, laser, motor controller IC or something that can't be fixed, which means you are left with...
2. If the new drive is an identical v78 you can straight swap the FW chip.
3. Pull the FW chip and read it with an external programmer to get the key.
Is this drive flashed? or stock?
