cover the copper pins, on the hard drive. The pings are not broken,but the plastic came out and exposes the things... i can take pics if any one wants to help me
Big mistake.. big one broke off the plastic shield that
If you manage to successfully plug a cable you should probably back up important stuff right away. That should be your primary concern, unless you think trying to plug in a cable might damage the pins. If that's still covered by warranty try sending it back, if not, well... buy a new one I guess? Unless you can find pieces that replace the ones that came off, but I can't help you there.
As above, get on ebay or similar sharpish and pick up an exact model of the drive. Connecting a sata to it is risky as it may lead to data damage, PCB swap is simple and requires only a torx screwdriver. If you care about your data dont piss about!
@SomeJerk: @ultra2extreme: UMM thanks, at least there is something i can do, and the way it happen was so fucking stupid, i bought a new drive and was trying to put this one on an external hard drive case, force it in and then couldn't take it out and force it out with and BOOM... that guilt when you know, it was all your fault..
@Chrjz: I know, i know, but in this case is not that i lost data, my problem is that i wasted a 1T drive in perfect condition, i was trying to make a external drive with the thing...
@ultra2extreme: I know you said i can do an PCB swab, but im going to spend more money fixing this drive than buying a new external, and to be honest the whole thing sucks because what i wanted to do is kinda recycle my old drive and find a used for it instead of trowing in the garbage... but welp
But again thanks for the advice you two are cool Duders.
