Failures are rarely predictable, especially with electronics.

It could have been an internal short that caused excessive current draw, the plug had enough resistance to cause heat and melt.

Checking out the PCB should be able to confirm that....Can one of you guys with the scorched drives confirm this? I'm really curious.... biggrin.gif

I will bet you anything that ALL of the above happened with Molex/SATA converters.

I'm quite curious about this myself, the others chiming in didn't really specify either way.
