I did try replacing the chip labeled as UAB1 on the
board. UC1 and UD1 are the two small chips right
"below" UAB1 if you're looking at the board from the
drive opening.  They're non-socketed chips.  I think
I'm probably better off just keeping this drive around
as a large paper weight (and future use for spare
parts) and getting a replacement rather than fix it. 
Thanks anyway for your help though!
