Question about Computers & Internet
The connection piece within the attach` separated from the usb adapter & I cannot get it to connect so it can be recognized by my computer &I have a great deal of info on it that I did not yet save in the hard drive. Where can I get help with this. Is it salvageable?
Copy your reply/post. Probably the best would be to hard wire a spare USB cable straight to the PCB of the PNY by soldering. If done right, this may be even a semi-permanent fixture. You need to cut-off the smaller USB connector and strip the outer cable cover to expose the 4 wires. The wiring arrangement is Vcc+5, Data -, Data +, Gnd.
This of course would require that you be comfortable working with electronic circuitry and components, a bit of soldering and the use of a DVM.
Should you be uncomfortable proceeding this route, perhaps your best bet would be as you posted, seek the services of a qualified professional.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
