Try to backup the data you already have in it to a computer. Carefully insert the four wires and the remainder of what's left into a computer's USB port - be careful not to short any of the contacts together or to the chassis of the computer. Make sure the contacts are connected to their corresponding contacts in the USB jack of the input.

You can reset a lost or forgot Windows password with 4 methods below:

1. Another valid administrator account which can normally log on.

2. A password reset disk or a repair disc.

3. Third-party software to create a bootable password reset CD/DVD or USB, like Windows Password Breaker.

4. Re-install. Will lose data.

The USB connector broke!


I did the same to the cruzer as tedthehobit, and here's how I fixed it.
1) Split open enclosure with screwdriver alone edge. The small key-ring will come off when enclosure is separated. (Safety glasses, please). Circuit board is attached to plastic base--the piece for sliding the connector.
2) To see amount of damage and trace connection, remove the plastic as follows. Two notches are on each size at socket end. The other end has plastic bar across on-top. Use needle-nose piler to chew away top of notches, slowly and carefully to avoid stressing board and damaging surface. This makes it easier to move the notches to the side to lift the board up and out.
3) Look at pads where socket was attached. Fairly clean break, surrounding circuit trace and pads are intact. So, it is worth to continue.
4) The socket connection side has no large pads to solder wiring. The D+ and D- traces were lifted off slightly, but too thin to attach wire. Look at the other side.
5) Use flashlight as backlight, and follow traces from connector pads to ends of closest chips where it is big enough for soldering. [I have jpg of connection points--where to post it?]
6) Use wire-warp (hair-thin and pre-stripped) wire and small-tipped solder iron and work under bright light. Tin wire with traces of solder and remove excesses solder from iron tip. Connect wire to chip, melting and using the solder already there.
7) Solder other ends of wire to the correct tabs of the usb socket.
8) Plug usb socket into a socket extender to plug into PC. Extender is optional, but it will help to deteach from PC later.
9) Did not work the first time because 5V-line solder at circuit was not good (eventually came off). Re-solder. Plug back into PC, and cruze lit up and PC can access the file.
