The only thing I would suggest is with a small screwdriver and needle nose pliers try to straighten it out making sure the center is not touching the outside of the plug. Then try it in a different port on your laptop because the jack could be damaged on the laptop. Insert it slowly and hold it in place, you may have to wiggle it slowly to be recognized and keep holding it until you can get the information off. Be patient and you may also need another person to help you.

You need to purchase an USB hard drive case and insert the hard drive into this USB case. You need to remove the jumper on the hard drive or set it to master drive. Power up the laptop then then power up the USB hard drive and then connect it to your laptop's USB port. The laptop will then detect this as a new device and will show up as an external storage device.
Check the usb port function in the computer bios settings and be sure that it is set to yes. Connect properly your external drive. If it has two wire usb connections, use both to obtain the maximum power that will be need by your drive.
