Small...Connector issue.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I got my new case for christmas, and I was busy setting it up, when I saw my 750Gb external hard drive laying around. I saw all the wonderful slots in my new case (HAF 932) so I decided to take it out and put it inside my case. I didn't have a thin enough screw driver to fit in the hole, so after I removed two of them i kind if ripped the casing off. To my despair, the SATA and power connectors both bent, and no matter how much I tried to put it back in place, the plastic that kept the plug attached was also destroyed, so hope of attaching it back normally was nil. So my question: Is there some way to salvage the hard drive without using those two connectors, or did I just blow 750Gb out of existence?

Thanks in advance and Merry Christmas!

You might be able to replace the IO board if you can find one from exactly the same model.
Other than that you're kind of up the creek.
