The only answer here would be to carefully break open the device and attempt to repair the connections. Either with the original end or by pirating the end of a usb lead (leave enough fly lead to make connections to the device) Carefully note the wire connection order of the device in relation to the replacement part

How to restore delected files from my usb flash drive


Hi, Even I faced the same problem. I have deleted some of the PDF file from my pen drive and luckily I could get all the files from it. I used Yodot File Recovery software and with the assistance of this software I was able to get all the PDF files. Download free trial version of the software if you want to know how to recover a PDF file. It recovers not only PDF file but also all the files present in the drive.

Hi Amir,not 'Safely remove the hardware' will result in data loss on USB flash drive.However,you can recover your data on it with third party data recovery software.I have succeed to recover data from pen drive with Tenorshare data recovery.It can recover data after deeply scanning your USB flash drive to look for lost data. By the way,you can download a trial version and scan your flash drive for free to preview whether your data can be recovered. http://www.any-data-recovery.com/index.htm

Usb connector broke off can the data be recovered?


Yes, but it has to be taken to someone who can do soddering.. make sure you keep both pieces and check local shops for someone who can soder the connectors back together. the data is stored on the main chip, its just the connector that gone now.

Verbatim 1GB flash drive data recovery


Sounds like you broke something ;)

If your computer does not recognize anything when you plug it into the computer, your problem is most likely a broken contact inside the usb drive.

You should attempt to open the drive, and see if one of the four contacts on the inside of hte usb key are no longer making their way to the circuit board, and try to reconnect it.

IF you can push the connectors down with your fingers and make contact temporarily, and the computer recognizes it, try to just hold it there while you copy all your data off. Then throw away the flash drive.
