If you are good with soldering you can fix it. If not - get another SP0822N drive and swap the cards.

How do I get data off verbatim 160 gb hard drive that the mini usb port broke off?


Your best bet is to buy a donor drive of the same make/model, remove the circuit board and install it on your broken drive - get your data but don't try to continue to use it after that because it will
fail.

Broken connecting pin on the hard disk


From my experience, it is not even close to cost effective to try and repair a hard drive with a broken pin. A new enclosure/board would have to be purchased and that board would have to be a match to the one you are pulling for the hard drive to be usable. This all needs to be done in a clean room.

It would cost hundreds less to just replace the drive.

Backup, backup, backup, and then when you are done with that backup again.

I have a working hard drive (Barracuda 7200.7) from a 2007 HP Pavilion a430n that contains files that I would like to retrieve.


Your description has me confused. I'm not clear on which power and data cables you are using. You described pulling one cable from first hard drive and connecting it to your second drive. Extra power connections should have been in a loose wire bundle somewhere in the computer. (Often they are tucked into an unused drive bay.)

The SR1720NX has 2 SATA controllers and two IDE controllers. Thus it can have 2 SATA and 4 IDE devices. The computer sometimes shipped with a SATA hard drive or an IDE hard drive. In all cases, the hard drives must be connected to the data cable (and to the motherboard) and then the power connection from the power supply has to be connected. So there should be 2 cables plugged into each drive. The optical drive is usually an IDE drive for this model, also a master drive.

The IDE power connection is a large 4-pin Molex connector; the SATA power cables are a smaller 5 pin connector. There is also a small 4 pin connector that powers a floppy drive, if present. IDE data cables are a wide 40-pin ribbon cable (sometimes an 80-pin cable for master/slave). The SATA data cable is a 15 pin cable.

First make sure that the jumper on the drive from the A430n is across the two pins in the second position (counting from the side away from the power connection). This is the cable select option. Next make sure that the IDE cable is firmly connected to both drives and the motherboard. (I've sometimes loosened the data cable while connecting the drives.) Finally check that the appropriate power cables are firmly connected to all the drives. Then power up the computer. (With the second drive on the Slave connection, if the device on the Master connection isn't powered up/recognized, then weird things may occur.)

BTW: you should be alert to the power needs for the computer. The original power supply could be overloaded with the extra drive. You might be better off using an external drive enclosure (USB) or a USB/SATA/IDE dongle that leaves the drive out in the open. Connect these with extreme care following the directions for when to connect the power supply. Some enclosures won't work without reformatting the drive - you do not want one of those.

I hope this helps.

Bag carrying the HDD banged to the wall, now when connecting I hear a click..click noise- unable to access the data in the HDD, will it work if open the same


When a hard diskmakes a clicking sound and the computer does not detect it then the hard diskis faulty. This is commonly known as "The click of death".
There is no way of fixing this hard drive, if you need to recover your data,then there are companies that can recover data off faulty hard drives BUT itwill cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

USB port broke off. Can I connect to something else to get the data off the drive? I cracked open the case and it's a barracuda 7200 but I don't recognize the pin connections. Please help? Thank...


Yes just fixed mine. Went to radio shack bought a gigaware sata 3.5 external enclosure.
Took the harddrive out of old enclosure. pryed off external alluminum case to expose a panel that sticks out to the side where the broken usb plug went. Wiggled that off then placed in new enclosure fits good. secured with old screws. plugged it in and it works great. The new usb plug is much sturdier. The external case cost me about $40.00 and some change but Im glad i retreaved my data. I will never buy another seagate. Hope this helps...Alan

I dropped my Western digital 1TB hard drive.


The case maybe damage, so could the hard disk.
First try connecting to your computer or to an USB hard drive adapter, if it works then you know the hard drive is OK and you only need to buy a new USB hard drive adapter case.
WinHex is a edit program that allows to you see and modify the data files on the hard disk in ASCII and HEX format. If the hard disk is faulty no programs can access the data on the hard disk.
There are data recovery companies that can recover data from damages/faulty hard disk BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

Adding a 320g seagate drive to my dell pc


The ribbon-cable to the first hard-drive probably has one connector at each end, and one more connector in the "middle". Look very closely at both hard-drives. Between where the ribbon-cable connects and where the 4-wire power connects is a set of pins. Look for 'MA' or 'CS' or 'SL' annotations above/below each pair of pins. Remove the small jumper from each disk-drive, and put the jumper back into the 'CS' position on each drive. Make sure that the "first" hard-drive is *NOT* connected to the "middle" connector on the ribbon-cable -- connect it *ONLY* to the "end" connector. Restart your computer, and watch the first start-up screen -- it should report that *BOTH* disk-drives have been detected. When Windows starts, open "My Computer" -- both disk-drives should be listed.

Power connection, but no Data (Mac)

Take a look at this photo. There are two different firewire connections on it. If your Mac has the one on the left, it is the four pin and needs a power source to run it. If it is the one on the right side, you have a six pin and should have power to run it.
