Question about Seagate FreeAgent Pro - 500GB, 7200 RPM, USB 2.0, eSATA, External 500 GB Hard Drive
Cand my information still be recovered if the usb port is broken on my hard drive??
I'm gonna guess and say the connector is a plug-in type? You'll be happy to hear that YES! all data is safe (or sould be)
You simply have to open the case, disconnect the HDD from the existing controller PCB. 1 of the connectorsis a opaque plastic PLUG with 4 thick wires (12v, Gnd, Gnd and +5v) and will have to be 'teased off' by pulling straight out and wiggling side to side, and the other is a slide-on,Black or Grey 40Pin Flatwire IDE or much smaller 8-Pin SATA connector. You can simply install it in another USB carrier of the same type (IDE/SATA) or your desktop as a spare drive. Empty USB HDD Carriers are avail from MicroCenter for $20.00 Let me know how you get on or if you need further assist.
