SATA Data Connector = Shit
Ok. The connector on my WD SATA-II drive broke off my drive. Such a flimsy piece of shit. Unfortunately for me it broke off and got stuck into the cable connector. I looked online in a state of ZOMG and I found it's a common problem. I broke off the connector off an old sata drive I don't use anymore and put this inside the old sata cable I used for it and have carefully managed to bend the pins and re-connect this modified cable... BUT.. it's so insecure I've had to selotape it into place.
So my question is, what can I do to prevent this happening in the future and does anyone have any links to tutorials on how to replace 'controller boards' that some people have talked about.
Thanks for the help.
