Repair broken


Easy, just hook up old drive as secondary and new drive as primary. Copy what you need from the secondary onto the primary. When you are done, just disconnect the secondary drive and enjoy your new one.

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.

Usb input from hard drive to computer is broken


Will replacing the data-cable replace the broken-off piece?

If not, then for about $30, you can buy a new "empty" external case, and then "transplant" your current disk-space into the new case.
Take your current external drive to the computer-store, so that the new case that you buy will be the correct case for your existing disk-drive.

Of course, because you have a "small" (100GB) disk-drive, any warranty for the disk-drive probably has expired, and it would be good "preventative-maintenance" to buy a new external disk-drive, before your current disk-drive unexpectedly "quits" on you.

How do I get the SW download for the USB-A Male to Mini USB-B Male Cable. Thank you


You don't need software for cables. You need drivers and software for devices, DVD/CD drives, ipods, mouse, external burners and hard drives etc. The cables are irrelevant and the computer doesn't recognize cables. I hope this helps and good luck.

The connector of my seagate free agent 160gb is broken, can i bypass the connection with an other adaptor in the internal hard drive


Solution No1:
You'll need to take it apart desolder existing cable and solder a new one (standart you can get in any sho).
Note: If you'll mix up wires than you can damage your motherboard or hard drive itself.

Solution No2:
Take it apart, remove hard drive, buy a new 2.5" SATA Caddy and fit you hard drive to it.

Shuts off every 5 minutes after being turned on...


Well, I actually figured out what was wrong with mine.  It was actually my hard drive which was causing the reboot. It was still under warranty, so I had it replaced.
