I'm not too sure as to what you're actually asking. If you have the key from the bricked Hitachi you can apply this key to the Samsung, spoof it to identify itself as the same model as the bricked Hitachi and you should be fine, to do that you will need Firmware Toolbox. Are you asking how to swap the drives' PCB's? I don't think you can do that between a Samsung and a Hitachi.

Glad you got it sorted mate, so was it a case of changing the key and spoofing?
