I have Plextor PX-708A DVD Writer that have it's motor flex cable damaged. The cable got bad bent in middle and it have the conductive metal tracks broken. I want to repair it. I have few basic ideas:

1. Cut the flex cable in half. Expose conductive tracks on lower half and attach thin wires to motor contacts using soldering iron or conductive glue.

2. Expose tracks by peeling half of the flex cable and join the damaged tracks together using conductive glue. Then cover the tracks by adhesive tape.

What do You think? Is the conductive glues any good?
