Question about SanDisk 2GB Cruzer Micro SDCZ62048A10 Hard Drive
I accidentally tripped over my laptop power cord knocking the computer onto the floor and bending my flash drive. The stem broke cleanly from the rest of the drive, I was wondering if it can be sautered back on? Or repaired in some way.
I had this exact thing happen...I contacted SanDisk and they had me send it to LC-Tech. They have a deal worked out with them for $75 up to 1GB and $125 over 1GB. I sent it and within 24 hours they got the data off and sent it back to me. Here is the website link: http://www.lc-tech.com/services/sandisk-recovery.html. Good Luck!

Understanding this is an old thread, I'm sure people will still find it looking for help. Therefore, I will add this to it. This is a very common problem. The first thing that should be remembered is that the fix for this is SOLELY for the purposes of getting the data off, and not to continue using the same drive. If you do not posses the technical skills and tools to micro solder it's best to contact a professional who can fix this for usually under $199. SERT Data Recovery is a reliable company that fixes these problems every day and actually has regular specials running. Other companies like DriveSavers and KrollOntrack are usually considerably more expensive. If you do feel confident with a soldering iron and there is no other physical damage to the PCB board then you can always solder an old USB cable to the board to get your data off. You do of course risk losing your data permanently if you do this the wrong way.

Could you fix this for my USB drive?

If you can see bare copper at the break area, you may be able to repair it with soldering by bridging across the broken spot with small bare copper wires soldered between the breaks. Strip a multiple strand wire and use solder flux to clean the board and wires. Use hot-melt glue or epoxy to hold the parts together.
