Btw, fzabkar, i found out that my local electronic store (farnell) sells SMAJ5.0A. They are manufactured by BOURNS and the specs are shown below:
Order Code: 1815150
Manufacturer Part No: SMAJ5.0A
RoHS : Yes
Reverse Stand-Off Voltage, VRWM: 5V
Breakdown Voltage Range: 6.4V to 7V
Diode Configuration: Unidirectional
Diode Case Style: DO-214AC
No. of Pins: 2
Power Dissipation, Pd: 400W
Could this BOURNS SMAJ5.0A diode be a substitute?
Thank you fzabkar XD

I have a burnt tvs 12v diode too. I would like to ask something before i proceed. Do i need to connect those two points with wire when i desolder the diode? Or i just remove it from the circuit?

Thanks fzabkar! I figured it out a min after i posted. I removed the part and the disk now is working again. I will backup the data and use it as a backup disk only.
