As long as the solder lands are exposed you can solder a "pigtail" a short wiring extention to it. Use an older wiring harness and/or "Y-cable" to cut the required wire with connection, strip ends and solder to HD. Make new pigtail long enough in order tie-wrap it down to reduce stress. If your capable similar tech work as such can done to replace the orginal connection with new connector when found. -OR- remove from a failed HD that connection and transfer over. You can ask local computer shops for a dead HD or visit online supply sources. You see this gets involved for such a small item, thus the orginal pigtail repair suffices.
While removing HDD, a Maxtor D740X-6L 40gig, I broke one of the power pins. Every one I have talked to says it's a loss. I really can't belive that and I don't want to spent mega bucks to have someone else extract data. Is there anyway that the pin can be repaired?
